  1. First one is great in design and third one great in concept.

  2. Thanks for the feedback, Durgesh. I was very suprised by the inventiveness in that Water Clock. The Pi Clock is hilarious to me and both the Pi and Triangle clocks look pretty cool to me.

  3. I added Clock #4, Nonki Takahashi's Pendulum Clock.

  4. I like how Nonki's Pendulum Clock says "NONKI" on it.

  5. Thanks, NONKI is my brand name : )
