Digital clocks are cheap and ubiquitous, but who doesn't love the "tick-tock" of an old-fashioned analog clock? Since the middle ages artisan clock-makers have delighted their patrons with designer timepieces. Some clocks have thin, flowering hands and arabesque numbering. Some use stark, industrial lines and heavy, modern types. Some are mass-produced. Some are completely unique.
First, discover analog clock parts, take them apart and play with them. Next create your own circuit time and then make your own clock. Design and engineer it to your liking.
