We are a bit of vagabonds and travellers inside. For us nothing can be compared with seeing, touching, smelling and tasting new places, experiencing them and exploring roles which the place kindly offers. Through the things we create we want to share several most significant cities of the USA and Europe which have not only rich history but important personal meaning.

The history of the city of San Francisco, California, and its development as a center of maritime trade, were shaped by its location at the entrance to a large natural harbor. San Francisco is the name of both the city and the county; the two share the same boundaries. Only lightly settled by European-Americans at first, after becoming the base for the gold rush of 1849, the city quickly became the largest and most important population, commercial, naval, and financial center in the American West. San Francisco was devastated by a great earthquake and fire in 1906 but was quickly rebuilt. The San Francisco Federal Reserve Branch opened in 1914, and the city continued to develop as a major business city throughout the first half of the 20th century. Starting in the later half of the 1960s, San Francisco became the city most famous for the hippie movement. In recent decades, San Francisco has become an important center of finance and technology.

The hands motion is complemented by the movement of 3 gears each of which is an AA battery operated. The mirror on the background adds some volume to the clock and amplifies the movement effect, transforming the clock into a kinetic installation.

Upon request the clock can be personalized with a text engraving, which will neatly supplement the look of the clock face.
