Approx./Actual time / Timepiece

Approx./Actual time
Approx./Actual time

The concept starts with two words, approximation and actuality. Sometimes, people look at the clock just to get the approximate time not the actual time. This timepiece corresponds to this human behavior. The hour hand is extended out from the scale panel so that it is readable from a distance. As people come close to it, they would see the actual time above the thinner hour hand and minute hand.
