This clock reminds the spectators to a distant star - as it dimly shines in the night and its color shifts to red - owing to the big distance (for further info on red shifting read the book 'The briefer story of time' from Stephen Hawking). - Raw material: both central disk and the arms are made of 6mm birch plywood board - Manufacturing process: the central disk and the arms are laser cut from a 6mm birch plywood board, after polishing the central disk is painted white, while the arms are painted with 2 different shades of silver + pink. The arms are simply clamped in the grooves of the central disk. As the arms are distributed manually around the disk none of these clocks are identical. - The movement: is silent (non-ticking), second hand sweeps around. It runs with 1pc. AA type 1.5V battery (not included in the package). Hands are made of black metal. - Dimensions diameter: 41cm / 59cm depth: 3,3cm weight: 0,65kg / 1.4kg This item is made to order, usual processing time is ~1 week. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - This model is part of our model line 'The Orbs' that is available in 2 sizes (L: 41cm, XL: 59cm) and contain the following products: - The Moon (silver / blue / purple) - https://en.pinkoi.com/product/n9EEzucd - The Sun (gold / yellow) - https://en.pinkoi.com/product/1VxNNkUV - The Star (white / silver / pink) - https://en.pinkoi.com/product/u5quu9gk - The Sirius (white / silver) - https://en.pinkoi.com/product/9Qht2JsN - The Setting Sun (gold / red / orange) - https://en.pinkoi.com/product/hDsBjDuY You are welcome to request custom color schemes.
