A typographic word clock that displays fuzzy time in many languages.

Radio controlled clocks beat the time atom accurately. This clock does not.
In our hectic world - every second counts. This clock will not tell.
We don't have time anymore. This clock has.

This clock will not change your pace. It will just slowly tell the time in a beautiful way.
