time difference clock / clock

time difference clock

Inspired by the colors appearing on copper minerals from the nature and traditional chemical methods that focus on coloring the copper, "Time Difference Clock" is an idea of clock design.
Using the contrast created by the original color of copper material and the copper colored by chemical method, the clock can easily indicate time of two different countries, which gives a new sense and meaning to time watching.
