This clock is shaped as a 6 pointed star that releases many strips - like energy rays coming from the final explosion (like a supernova). The zigzag shape of the rays give an virtual 3D effect to the flat surface, as if rays pop up into the space. - Raw material: the selection of the raw material was based on the principle to keep the natural appearance of the wood as much as possible - therefore plywood was used, for it bears the wood grains still strong and thin enough. - Manufacturing process: the dial of this particular clock is laser cut from a single 4mm birch plywood board, then the finishing (polishing, painting) is made by hand. - 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 plastic in white. - Dimensions: diameter: 29cm (11 1/2"), depth: 3,3cm (1 1/4"), weight: 0,35kg (0.8lb). This item is made to order, usual processing time is ~1 week.
