While making the design of a new clock we were inspired by Notre-Dame de Paris, a medieval Catholic cathedral in Paris. The cathedral is consecrated to the Virgin Mary and considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Its pioneering use of the rib vault and flying buttress, its enormous and colorful rose windows as well as the naturalism and abundance of its sculptural decoration. Major components that make Notre Dame stand out include one of the world's largest organs and its immense church bells.
The stained glass windows of Notre-Dame, particularly the three rose windows, are among the most famous features of the cathedral. The west rose window, over the portals, was the first and smallest of the roses in Notre-Dame. It is 9,6 meters in diameter, and was made in about 1225, with the pieces of glass set in a thick circular stone frame. None of the original glass remains this window as it was recreated in the 19th century.
