The Slow Clock re-imagines the traditional time-teller by doing away with pesky minutes and instead focusing only on the hours of the day. Thus is boasts 24 markers instead of the usual 12. In this way, time appears to move much slower. Completing one rotation a day "just like the Earth," as Óscar Pérez, one-third of Factil, puts it, the Slow Clock offers "a more calm and relaxed image of the speed of time."

Created by Factil and Mercè Núñez, the Slow Clock also features only one hand, since it no longer requires a minute one. Considering that people don't make appointments and such on such specific times like 10:17, the design of the Slow Clock is rather natural.
