The Eureka clock was designed by T Powers an American engineer and patented by the Kutnow brothers in 1906. The saying is that only about 10,000 clocks were made and because of this prices have risen considerably over the years Many articles have been written on the Eureka clock, the one to get is by Dr Alan Shenton published in 1979 it contains technical details, patent specifications, and the history of the Eureka Clock, plus details of the various models that were for sale.
