Clock in a jar Answered

Here's a cool concept made by Oren Hetzroni. It's a clock in a jar where the hands move around the inside of the glass. Reading it is a little tricky, but if you match up the big and little hands with the numbers you can figure it out.

Remaking this one is super easy. Just put the movement inside the lid and bend the hands at a right angle so they move around the side.

someone has to be confused... I guess, and...it's me. Is a pocket watch necessary?  I didn't think it was. from my understanding of the directions. Also, would it be possible to show the inside of the lid? I'd really like to make these as gifts. Are the numbers stick on decals?

Instead of pocket watch, do a small jar one that you wear as a watch... that would be awesome.

I think I could make my own with just a little tinkering...

Make sure you create an I'ble when you do so!

Damn, that is cheap. And just $5 shipping from Israel? Wow.

 That's actually rather amazing, what is it delivered by vest bomb or pidgin?

hm, you could do a mini pocket watch type version....

 wow... very cool... 
kinda reminds me of The Persistence of Memory by Salavdor Dali... 
I might just have to make one...

Interesting, gives a person ideas...


Very nice and so easy to make.

Perhaps this can be integrated in other things :D

Although when somebody asks you how late it is and you say "let me get my jar" is also awesome :D
