Comparing the artwork designs of the Bramwell Brown Weather Clock and the Limited Edition '1920s-style' Weather Clock

We occasionally get asked the difference between the artwork depicting the weather forecasts in our regular Weather Clock and our Limited Edition 'Traditional 1920s' Weather Clock.

Like all Limited Edition Weather Clocks, the mechanics work in the same way as our regular Weather Clock design, it simply depicts the weather changes with different aesthetics inside its little theatre set. Or put another way, the patented Bramwell Brown mechanics are 'dressed' with different artwork in our Limited Edition clocks.

Whilst our 'Into The Wild', 'London' and 'Cycling' Weather Clocks are all clearly different, the 'Traditional' Weather Clock also depicts clouds and sunshine in broadly the same way as our regular Weather Clocks do. It's just that the 'Traditional 1920s' design is assembled by hand in far smaller quantities and thus a far rarer sight in the Bramwell Brown Workshop! 

Indeed, both designs are by the same Scottish-based artist, Peter McDermott. Peter is famous for his landscapes depicting famous British scenes. Our favourite being this one of the Forth Rail Bridge:

So here they are, above and below - the Limited Edition 'Traditional 1920s' Clock compared to our regular Weather Clock design:

Forecasts for 'Very Dry' and 'Fair' (Traditional beneath)

The clouds in the regular Weather Clock are fluffier and more rounded. Whilst the 'Traditional' clock, is set more on Peter McDermott's trademark style of vintage railway posters. 

Forecasts for 'Change' and 'Rain' (Traditional beneath)

The clouds enter the left and right hand side of the clock's little theatre set at about the same time. The Traditional Weather Clock, especially, manages to show a lovely depth of scenery when forecasting 'Change'.

Forecast for 'Stormy' (Traditional beneath)
