An iconic and timeless 1970s design, the Aurora clock was originally produced by Kirsch Hamilton based on Jordan Kirsch's patent for a clock. Using polarizing filters and an effect called bi-refractance to create the changes, the Aurora's face continuously changes color as the secondhand disk overlaps the minute & hour hands or when viewed from different angles. The sculpted case is made of highly polished aluminum that was cut out on a lathe and hand polished. The ever changing beauty of the design warranted its inclusion in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.
Produced by several companies through the design's history, this version - the Aurora Classic - was produced by ChronoArt, the undisputed experts on these clocks to this day. This version is in good condition with very light wear to the case. If it isn't as bright as you'd prefer, it can be modified to have an LED light source by AP Clocks, who apprenticed under Barry Gamble of ChronoArt.
