Bicycle chain clock

I have a love of innovative clocks and this is no exception.

The catena wall clock was designed by Andreas Dober for anthologie quartett. Yours for just $2,338.

    @m5 – I love how exact the price is, too. I guess they simply couldn’t find a chain cheap enough to bring it in at $1,999

    It would be better if it had some chains and cogs to do minutes and seconds and day of the week.

    Dates are a little trickier – what would be awesome is some bicycle derallier gears set up to switch between the 28,29,30 and 31 tooth cogs each month as needed.

    That is a lot of money for a clock that leaves a lot of room to guess as to what time it really is.

    @ Paul:
    for the days and months you can “simply” add one chain for all days of the year rather than 2 for months and days. That would work around your problem of different days per months.

    Oops, forgot that the 365 1/4 day chain would hang down 2 floors from the clock. Have to think about that ;-)
