As a huge fan of TokyoFlash, I love weird and wonderful ways of telling time. Time is stranger than we like to acknowledge, why not monkey with it more, taunt it? This objet d’heure moves around to mark the hours. A continuous line of verse skirts the edge and the clock moves to rest on the word of the hour (literally). Of course, with just hours marked, you have to forgo that whole hours and minutes nonsense.

Clock n’ roll
