Most people with the ability to easily read an analogue chronograph can manage without the presence of numbers. The Swallow X Clock has hence done away with them entirely, but it still helpfully provides points of reference for the rotating hands in the form of some elegant feathered friends.
The Haoshi Design Studio hand-makes the exquisite sculptural timepieces from resin to produce lifelike three-dimensional representations of birds in flight. It looks as though most of the beautiful avian figures are unique, each with its wings spread at a different angle and its body wall-embedded to a different degree.
The installation of the Swallow X Clock is not the effortless process of a typical wall clock. It requires the individual mounting of the 12 delicate pieces, in addition to the dial for the center.
