      Scott! Take a look at this!
      Now imagine if there was a version with a gradation of the colors that would represent those on the present. Wouldn't that be great with your anual clock? Oh yes it would! :)

      Well done, sir!

      I love these updates as well. The details of your journey are quite fascinating. The slow, careful, forward movement of your manufacturing process is very much like your clock. Too often we rip the paper off a present, look at a gift and then say "What's next?" Your updates and process are a long, slow tease. We see the gift, your visuals are like shaking the package. But we can't unwrap it yet. I'm fine with enjoying this process slowly, exactly like your clock, enjoying the moment NOW, which was exactly your intent.

      I didn't donate enough for the actual clock but I have to say I've loved watching the process and progress. Hearing about all the steps and problems has provided more understanding to the industrial process. Many thanks and keep it up! Looks wonderful!

      Looking forward to seeing the whole model though, case and all included.

      Just hope a black hand is a choice aswell besides a white one. Like 2 model options.
      Just don't find it a very pleasant colour to look at hanging over of all those colours.
      And that is not even with the hand beind at the 12'o clock position.

      It is black here, white there etc. Maybe for a question with a clear answer in the FAQ?
