Pivot

Pivot has two hands moving faithfully around; you cannot set them to particular positions. However, you can rotate the whole clock so that the hands are at the correct location.

  1. huh? I don’t understand how this is supposed to work.

  2. A second thought on it… you can’t really set the clock right with just rotation, excluding some rare occasions.

    If both hands are at the same length, though, users will have two chances every one hour to hang the clock right [mathematically proved]. Then they’ll need to guess which is which from then on.
