The Persistence of Chronology

The usual mechanism for running the clock, rather than be attached to a spindle at the centre, sits at the top (above 12 o'clock) looking like the knob on a pocket watch. It rotates a flexible band concealed around the edge of the face. The ends of the hands are fixed to this band (via transparent extensions), and rotate around a centre axle. The face, hands and edge are completely flexible, and the entire clock can be draped over any part of Port Lligat.

       Indeed, [po]. You were quick with that link, too... I was just about to post the same one.

       You'll want to wear this upside down.

       Um - if Dali painted this seventy five odd years ago, does it really count as a new idea...?

       His clocks were made of cheese.

       might work better if you had circles of clear plastic with clock hands on them. they could sit in a plastic pouch full of oil to keep them lubricated and could be turned just like you say.

       Nice - that would stop the sagging you might get from having them held only at the ends.
