Clock Hands Stay Put, Numbers Move Instead

by Paul Strauss

Unlike a normal clock, this funky modern timepiece keeps its hands stationary, letting the numbers on its dial rotate around the hands to tell the time. A simple gear-drive mechanism moves the outer ring around the clock mechanism.

    The designer could have done a little more research…

    Clocks/watches with roman numerals always write “4” as IIII not IV. This is so it doesn’t get confused with VI (not as important for a “normal” clock/watch but very important for this one where IV and VI are not stationary).

    I am thoroughly offended and disgusted. I will think of this clock as I throw up into the toilet.

    Very much reminding us of the previously featured Monolithic Tower Clock, which also offers a ‘handless’ means of time telling, this Pisa Clock – so called, rather obviously, on account of its leaning design and which is available from the same…
