This clock reminds the spectators to a distant star - as it dimly shines in the night and its color shifts to red - owing to the big distance (for further info on red shifting read the book 'The briefer story of time' from Stephen Hawking). - Raw material: both central disk and the arms are made of 6mm birch plywood board - Manufacturing process: the central disk and the arms are laser cut from a 6mm birch plywood board, after polishing the central disk is painted white, while the arms are painted with 2 different shades of silver + pink. The arms are simply clamped in the grooves of the central disk. As the arms are distributed manually around the disk none of these clocks are identical. - The movement: is silent (non-ticking), second hand sweeps around. It runs with 1pc. AA type 1.5V battery (not included in the package). Hands are made of black metal. - Dimensions diameter: 41cm (16") depth: 3,3cm (1 1/4") weight: 0,65kg (1.4lbs) This item is made to order, usual processing time is ~1 week.
