Apparatus at Nash Point Lighthouse

At Nash Point Lighthouse we have a "contraption" whose original purpose is unclear to us.

Please see today's post on Nash Point Lighthouse for a few pics of it.

If anyone can tell us the purpose of it and what it was meant to do we would be very grateful.

It appears to be in two sections, the major part is most likely a timepiece of some sort and the minor part seems to be a mechanism to sound out regular beats.

It is from Trinity House and would have been at one of their Lighthouses or Lightships.

All replies would be welcomed.

Many thanks.
