The Mystery Clock is a circular clock (82 cm in diameter) made from vacuum formed carbon fibre, produced by Marc in Sydney. The clock has a raised pedestal form on its rear which includes clockworks and back plate. Two concentric circles are moulded on the front: one is a white spherical marker denoting the hour and the other is a minute marker. Marc devised a system employing magnetically propelled dots that seem to magically orbit the face of the clock. The spheres travel in the circles as the hands of the clock.
