Clockwork Watch Timeline
Britain is in the grip of a recession, society has fallen on hard times, the gap between ‘haves and have nots’ grows wider by the day. A decline in trade, power shortages and the inability to manufacture energy-efficient products leaves British industry in the doldrums, but on a local level the amateur maker and boffin ethos thrives. People begin to innovate and experiment at home, creating a thriving cottage industry of inventors and alchemists. They begin to adorn and augment everything they own with mechanical objects.
Queen Victoria looks to science for a miracle and the Department for the Advancement of Sciences takes up the challenge. While developing artificial limbs for veterans of the Saryn War, they hatch plans to create a mechanical device – a clockwork servant – but fail to find a sustainable power source. Read More:

Clockwork Watch: Breakaway Book Launch!
Clockwork Watch started out in Asia, and we’re honoured to have a band that represents many of the inspirations that started this story, so we’re keeping this one pretty close to home, and it will not be announced as such… So, shhhhhhhhh….
Sunday Driver will be doing a special one-off live performance at Clockwork Underworld on May 3rd.
Sunday Driver blend together Indian and British influences from past and present with the help of a pumpkin, a melon and the skin of a goat.
Formed in Cambridge in 2000, Sunday Driver have grown from a small acoustic act to a riotous 7-piece band, playing headline gigs in the UK and abroad, creating ground-breaking music that blends contemporary sounds with Eastern influences and instrumentation.
