Time Machine Clock - Rolling Ball Clock

One of the more interested clocks we've come across recently - makes watching 'time' fun, but be prepared for some noise. A row of balls spiral down tracks, and navigate their way to the bottom from where they are scooped back up to start the process all over again. 

Consisting of 3 main rails which are numbered for hours and minutes. The bottom rail represents the hours, the middle and upper rails are used to represent the minutes. Every minute, the rotating arm grabs a ball from the bottom. It drops the ball on the highest spot on the uppermost ramp, every five minutes the top rail will deposit a ball on the second rail. Every hour, the upper and middle rails drop one ball to the bottom rail to increase the hour indicator. After 12 hours the balls in the bottom row are set free, and it starts all over again.
