The Yin Yang Clock Keeps Time Using an Ancient Chinese Secret

I really need to step my game up if I am going to have any shot at telling time on the Yin Yang Clock. Designers Hugo Sigaud Neto and Ricardo Bueno created this clock, which uses the ancient Chinese concept of Yin and Yang to reflect a sense of time and nature.

The clock looks cool, but is a tad complicated to read. Basically, whenever the big hand is in the white portion of the circle (Yang), it is daytime, and when it is in the dark portion of the circle (Yin), it is night. While some may find this clock difficult to read, I truly appreciate its deeper commentary. Ultimately, harmony, time and nature are the prime focuses of this clock.
