The symbols that inspired our collection of steampunk clocks.
The steampunk style is closely related to the Big Ben Clock. Perched on an impressive height of 96 meters, this clock with a large diameter of 2.7 meters has greatly influenced the retrofuturist aesthetic. This universe was greatly inspired by this impressive tower, its Victorian and Gothic architecture. The Elizabeth Tower, also known as the "clock tower", commonly known as Big Ben was a project designed and built by Charles Barry.
This project dictates the creation of a new palace, following the fire of Westminster, the old palace. The construction of this palace emphasized the neo-Gothic style. The chief architect of this project was Barry, but the creation of Big Ben was made by Augustus Pugin. Currently, many steampunk clocks are called Big ben, highlighting this splendid tower and its huge and spectacular clock.
It's hard to talk about steampunk clocks without mentioning the famous Gastown Steam Clock in Vancouver. The Gastown Steam Clock is located at the intersection of Water Street and Cambie, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Vancouver. Although this clock appears to be a relic from the Victorian era, it was created in 1977 by Raymond L. Saunders, a Canadian clockmaker. This clock is undoubtedly the 2nd steam clock that the world has ever known, just after the one built by John Inshaw.
