Preserved clocks and mechanical figures are seen in Switzerland.
Titles read: "Clock-works. In an atmosphere of chimes and tick-tocks, some of the world's oldest clocks and mechanical marvels, are carefully preserved in Switzerland."
Various shots of watches, clocks and little music boxes. We also see an automated human figure called 'The Sketcher' - it is a mechanical man drawing. C/U of the workings in the back of the figure. An automated bird in a cage sings. Very tiny birds spring up from little music boxes and clocks and sing.
