Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The inner mechanism and clock face are weighted to keep them vertical while the outer rim rotates as the clock drum rolls down the plane over the course of a week. At the end of the week, the clock is lifted and replaced at the top of the plane. No further winding is necessary.
The solid brass base has knurled adjustable feet and tapering doric columns supporting the tooled leather slope, the sides of which are embellished with red perspex borders and a brass strip with engraved days of the week.
The signed drum movement has a silvered Roman chapter ring, engraved sunburst centre and pierced hands to the movement with lever platform escapement driven by a large counterweight.
