It contains more than 30 gears but may have contained far more originally, and is sometimes referred to as the first known analog computer, although its absolutely perfect manufacturing suggests that it may have had a number of predecessors during the Hellenistic Greek period which have not yet been found.
The device is remarkable for the level of miniaturization and for the complexity of its parts, which is often compared to that of 18th century clocks.
Technological artifacts of similar complexity did not reappear until well over a thousand years later.
The mechanism is the oldest known complex scientific calculator.
