New Work: Daniel Weil’s Clock for an Astronomer
The Clock for an Astronomer follows Clock for an Architect and Clock for an Acrobat as part of the “Matter of Time” series of unique timepieces designed by Pentagram’s Daniel Weil. The clocks are currently on display in a selling exhibition, Making Time, at Sotheby’s New Bond Street until 13 January.
“The sun is the celestial time setter, and timekeeping is its terrestrial reflection,” says Daniel Weil.
This new clock is a celebration of astronomy and geography, the dial meets the compass. Twelve o’clock is north. Made in nickel-plated brass, ash and silver, the clock’s dimensions are 600mm in diameter and 712mm in height.
