Half Past an Icy Moon
Things on Saturn move pretty fast: With a day less than 11 hours long, you'd have to hustle to fit everything in. Keep track of more generous Earth days with Douglas Chalk's creative clock. Within the black space (see what we did there?) of the shadow box frame, his layered rendition of the ringed planet and its moons marks the time in galactic fashion: The rotating rings tell the hour, the orbiting moon serves as the minute hand, and the stationary moon spins with the seconds. The accurate and silent mechanism won't wake hibernating astronauts, or make them worry they'll miss their launch window. Whether wall mounted or displayed on a desk, it makes a distinctive timepiece for any punctual space lover. Each piece is signed and numbered on the back. Made in California.
