Designed by Sander Mulder, the Continue Time is quite an impressive clock. Its seconds hand rotates on the minute hand, which in turn rotates on the hour hand. Despite the complex mechanism, the time can easily be read the usual way. The clock is made of brass and aluminum, and the artist is selling it as a special edition with just 25 units in the offing.
