    You know, one of the characters in the movie, "Harry Potter," (Colin Creevey) used an Argus C3.

    Just by itself, the C3 looks pretty Steampunk. With a little wood and brass cosmetics, it would be the genuine article! With a Steampunk styled light meter, it would make a perfect combo!

    (Or fit right in to a HP movie. )

    Oh so it's a wind up meter. Doesn't need clock work with escapement.

    As I pointed out above, clockwork cannot by it's nature measure light. The wind up radios use the machanism I described above, or have no clockwork and the user turns the generator directly by a small crank. The actual radio is no different from any other radio deriving it's power from a chemical battery, photovoltaic battery, or mains voltage.
