I just needed to prove to myself that what I suggested was indeed 
feasible... ;-)

Everything done within Poveray, in particular:
- subdividing the pendulum weight to get rid of the coarse facets
- properly identifying all the Groups and Materials and renaming them 
- Merging the different Pendulum elements, then slightly rotating and 
translating the merged object.
- exporting as OBJ to keep a work-copy of the clock
- exporting to POV-Ray

Nothing fancy in terms of scene building here.
