Apple iBook G4 Makes A Wonderful Clock

Apple iBook G4 Makes A Wonderful Clock


After the iBook G4 went bust, this user decided to have it do some work, and created this wonderful clock, where the mouse makes for a rather interesting pendulum. The clock itself has a quartz clock movement, while the mouse relies on two AA batteries for movement. The clock was selling for $75 on Etsy, but as you’d guess, it didn’t take a lot of time for this to go “out of stock.”

Geocentric Watch Puts The Earth At The Center Of Action

Geocentric Watch Puts The Earth At The Center Of Action


The Geocentric Watch is supposedly a sci-fi inspired design that looks totally cool. Well, I’m not sure about the sci-fi part, but it does a lot of exercise in the planetary motion of the earth around the sun. The rings you see on the dial are in perpetual motion, and move around the watch to show time. Checkout designer Geoffrey Cooper’s website for more intriguing designs.

Aeternitas Mega 4 Could Be The Most Complex Watch In The World


Franck Muller’s Aeternitas Mega 4 is better refered to as the most complex watch in the world, but it is also an intricate beauty worth admiration. The limited edition watch has 1,483 parts for movement and has nearly 36 complications, 25 of which are visible on the dial. Functions on the watch include a

monopusher split-second chronograph, a 1000 year calendar, very accurate equation of time (between solar and clock time), complex sonnerie chiming functions, multiple timezones, moon phase indicator, and of course, more.

That’s about as exciting as the $2.7 million price tag.

Thomas Cruyl’s Cuckoo Clock Is A Wrist Watch

Thomas Cruyl’s Cuckoo Clock Is A Wrist Watch


Thomas Cruyl’s “CWatch” is amazing on many levels. A tribute to the tradition of swiss artisan watch making, the watch has been created to look like the beloved cuckoo clock, has a decorative wooden exterior, and basically combines two different arts in one package. What would actually make it awesome though, would be a working cuckoo mechanism; sadly, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Ora Watch Concept Is Insane And Awesome!


The Ora Watch Concept from designer Alexandros Stasinopoulos was created not to simply show time, but the mechanical watch also intends to highlight the world’s achievements in engineering, aesthetics and craftsmanship. This mechanical watch does exactly that, while looking completely awesome! The watch is a study in haute horlogerie, which means it shows time in an unconventional way. It has three interwoven tapes, each indicating hours, minutes and the day.
