Faint Hope! - Mad Clock Question

Banned 6 replies
Found 9th Jun 2010
Morning All,

Hoping someone can help me with a wee bit of an off the wall request. When we were in Turin a few years back, the clock in the kitchen of the hotel we stayed at was fantastic and we've been looking for something the same or similar ever since without any degree of success. I'm hoping someone here happens to know a specialist who sells what we're after

The clock (such as it was) was less a clock and more just roman numerals which appeared to be scattered randomly on the wall but the clock always managed to tell the right time. It was odd but pretty ingenious and we'd both love one for the living room.

Any assistance very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Billy

Hi,

The idea sounds really nice, I've had a bit of a search but cannot find anything. If the roman numerals were just scattered then you could make the clock yourself by buying a set of Roman numerals and a clock mechanism and then setting them up on the wall you would just have to work on a degrees basis i.e. as long as XII is in a line from the 360degrees point, VI from 180, etc. I suppose this would mean nobody would have exactly the same clock as you. I did find a website that had some wild and wacky clocks. ]http//ww…tml

Hope you find what you are looking for

I think you may be looking for this type of clock made by an italian company by the name of progretti.

Although similar items can be built from kits in the UK a little cheaper if you do a bit of googling!

I'm guessing it'll be something like this : - ivgstores.com/IVG…htm
Like someone has already said... i'd suggest buying some numbers/clock mechanism and sticking them up yourself!

That looks very similar although I swear the numbers were not in order yet the clock worked anyway. I may well have been hallucinating and imagining things being better than they were but I've gone for this one from Amazon. Thanks very much.

Cheers,
