10,000 year clock modelThe Clock of the long now is one of the most beautiful examples of modern horological construction and technique. Built with very long timeframe it has no projected end date. This allows them to focus on the ideas and implementation and not worry about the deadline. The idea of a pilgrimage to a mountain clock may seem strange. But I am looking forward to taking my kids there one day.
