Strasbourg astronomical clock

A first clock, known as the Three Kings (because it scrolled the three wise men in front of the Holy Family every hour), had been built between 1352 and 1354 by an unknown master, but it had to cease to function at the beginning of the sixteenth century. due to its wear and rust 3.

The third and current clock generally consists of new mechanisms placed in the case of the second clock, dating from the sixteenth century.

“New mechanisms” is key in your comment. Prague’s astronomical clock still works with its original mechanisms intact.

Its creator was blinded by the towns officials, so that he could not create a second or better clock.

Darkey,
#31 is an otter though highly stylised. Notice the 2 limbs near the face. A seal would have flippers.
