zepi 13/11/2012 - 17:14

very charming indeed. Just a detail, which to me makes this clock THE SwissRailwayClock, you forgot the 1.5 second stop after the red hand reached the 12.. ;)

Absolutely beautiful.... @aivenhoe is right; in the original clock there is a slight delay when the red handle reaches 12...

Well done! ;)

@ aivenhoe & metrowave: Ups! You're absolutely right! Got me there! I seem to have copied from the Apple knockoff... ;)

Updated version without annoying tick tack...
