looks to be a clockwork system, possibly rotating a cam

Hm....still no positive answer.

It'll certainly be different to what you expect, just like his thought process.

"Hm....still no positive answer." Are you serious ?

Have you tried some of the links provided by a search engine?

One such link says it is "mechanical", therefore it must be powered by some kind of power supply, clockwork, mains or battery; I don't believe solar power was around when it was created.

If you believe the hype that it doesn't beat when nobody is looking at it, then good for you.

Covergirl Yes of course i've searched for an answer and I visited all the sites that are mentioned in the more, but nowhere actually say what drives it.

I think that it's driven by a pump.

Underneath the gemstones there is a small neoprene rubber bulb that is rhythmically inflated and deflated. Pretty straightforward in engineering terms - it's the kind of thing that is used in dialysis machines. A rotating disc has cams that act on a tube to drive pulses of blood through the system.

Or perhaps I'm completely wrong.
