I've been working  on  the above illustrated clock for the last day or so. As you can see if you examine the dial carefully, this clock started life as a single handed clock.  Any ideas as to how we can KNOW this?  (Equivalent of a MYSTERY OBJECT, but simple enough when you think about it).

The minutes are engraved on the inner diameter of the chapter ring while the added minute hand points to the outer diameter of the chapter ring.

Well spotted Crowbard. Quite correct as far as it goes, but there is a small element of having missed the obvious, I think.
