Oqua-Wasseruhren / Oqua-Water Clocks


Oqua – Water Clocks are designed for people who want to calm down instead of being stressed when looking
at the clock. The sound of rippling water and the natural impression of the wooden cubes contribute to a pleasant atmosphere.
The clocks consist of two different sized cubes. The big one describes a 12-hour period, the small one a 60-minute period. In combination you can read the current time through the water level on a scale.
The visible water tanks are filled via pump at intervals of 15min and 60s. After 12 hours or 60 minutes the full tank is emptied into a collecting vessel by utilizing the siphon effect.
