About Time Engine Calendar Clock

The table clock itself looks absolutely fantastic when assembled — it is a cylindrical shape mechanism standing on 4 curved legs. Different layers can be rotated to adjust the date:

  • Central 2 layers can be adjusted to show the date itself via 2 figures
  • Left one is rotated to show the day
  • Right one is rotated to show the month

The whole construction is quite sturdy, but the “accordion” pieces can be quite fragile during and after the assembly.

There is also a pocket watch embedded on one side of the construction. It is actually a real clock and can be taken out to change batteries with easy after you have finished the assembly.

It takes a usual small clock battery, so one battery will be enough for around 1 year of service.

I have to say that the antique feel is conveyed perfectly in the design and the plexiglass intersections are very well implemented to offer a bit of transparency and lightness.

Features

There are not many features to describe in this model despite the fact that it is a real working clock and a calendar.

There are no movable parts or any other additional functionality.

The assembly, on the other hand, can be quite challenging, especially with the “accordion” parts that I have mentioned before. Those are extremely fragile and can be broken if not handled with care.

Depending on your experience, you can assemble the model in one sitting. Though I would advise to separate the assembly into 2-3 sessions and make sure to rest for 15 minutes at least once an hour.

An important note is that you don’t have to use any glue or anything like that. That’s incredible considering you are getting a full-fledged calendar and clock in the end.
