In my collection of novelties there are quite a number of clocks and watches and I thought I would just show a few of the clocks that I have bought over the years. This extraordinary thing is supposed to be a wristwatch… enormous! It is far too big for my wrist of course. I thought just recently that I ought to wear it around my waist and call it a waist watch rather than a wrist watch. But it works perfectly well, sits on the wall of my room, and keeps me informed of the time, along with all the other ones. In the front here, we have got an extraordinary clock which a friend of mine made, starting off with a little can which had paint pouring from it. A kind of ‘frozen moment’ they call it. But on the drips at the bottom he put a little quartz clock movement, which is there on the back. Now it looks somehow as if the clock is suspended on the pouring paint. You can still put coins in there [in the can] if you want, as well. This is an extraordinary clock. Again it is battery operated, and instead of the hands moving, the whole of the dial moves, at a very gentle pace. And if you want to, just for fun, you can turn it round and have Roman numerals on the back. But it keeps very accurate time and that just sits on the little wheel and moves ever so slowly, and keeps a good record of the time as it is passing. And the most interesting clock really of these I have brought along is this one here, the Shock Clock which Lubor Fiedler designed, which is an optical illusion. Very, very fascinating, and you just cannot tell how that hand can be holding the card when there is an air gap between them. And there is a pendulum going at the back. How can that card be suspended in the middle of the air? It is not fixed to the front glass – there is a clear gap between them – and yet somehow he has managed to get the card suspended in the middle of the chamber, and the pendulum behind, showing there is no connection at the back. Extraordinary. The Shock Clock. My favourite I think.
