The dial of this clock is composed of a sequence of constantly increasing wooden frames where each one is stuck in the next size while rotated 15 degrees. Each frame bites in the next size halfway. This gives the dial a strange whirl look – hence the name. The direction of the wood grains rotates together with the frame and this gives a fascinating shading effect on the surface: some frames look lighter while others darker – however all the frames bear the same color (see the 3rd image: Whirl – right side).
– Material: the selection of the raw material was based on the principle to keep the natural appearance of the wood as much as possible – therefore plywood has been selected for it bears the wood grains still strong and thin enough.
– Manufacturing process: the dial is made of 9 wooden frames that are laser cut from a single 6mm birch plywood, the frames stick in one another like pieces of marquetry, the finishing (polishing) is made by hand. The surface is oiled.
– The movement: is silent (non-ticking), second hand sweeps around. It runs with 1pc. AA type 1.5V battery (not included in the package). Standard hands are plastic in black.
