1660-1680 was the time the longcase clock reached near perfection. It bore a newly designed anchor escapement believed to have been designed by Gulielmus (William) Clement of London in the year 1671, thus giving the clock more accuracy.
Some believe he is also the creator of the longcase that housed the longer pendulum. The real William Clement is also credited with building ‘The Turret Clock’ for Kings College Cambridge in 1671 for which he was handsomely paid £42. The clock is now housed in the Science Museum, London.

This is where the magic was woven from. The story of the Clement family stems fictionally from Gulielmus (William) Clement.
Quote from the book ‘The Magic of Grandfather Time.’
A big brass face, once bright and gleaming, barely shimmers as his long, black hands rotate slow, but sure. The intricately carved, flame mahogany long-case, was a warm golden reddish brown a year ago. Now dull, and softly muted by the accumulation of dust, it still wraps protectively around the golden pendulum heart.
