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.

    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…
