We’ve shown you the 0,000 Tourbillon in a Bentley and the 3D printed Tourbillon watch.
Today a Japanese student from Tohoku University of Art & Design has stepped up to the challenge and created a 407-piece clock out of wood. Kango Suzuki is the designer who hand-carved the mechanical clock, oddly named the Plock wood clock, as his senior year thesis.
It works by using four magnetic stylus pens on a magnetic drawing board to write the time every minute in 24-hour format. The writing is more of a scribble but an achievement of this magnitude is definitely commendable.
Suzuki’s work of art was discovered after he posted a 16-second video of the working mechanism onto Twitter. After a few “genius” labels and sufficient media coverage, Suzuki said that he only tweeted pictures and videos of his work to show his friends and was surprised with the exposure.
Talk about Japanese humility.
