I only really like art if I can look at it and think, "I could have done that but I’m too lazy to be bothered." The DIY Gear Clock is one of those things, but it is way cooler than anything I could have made.

Created by Alan Parekh, the DIY Gear Clock is, according to, "constructed out of fiber board gears, which is the only conspicuous and most splendid feature and all the electronics lurk beneath it snugly. Each gear is meticulously stacked over the other with interlocking cogs, so the gear rotates and shows accurate time concomitantly."

I don’t really know what any of that means, but it looks cool! Check out the gallery for more from the DIY Gear Clock. Stats for Constructable Timepieces Trending: Older & Mild
