The so-called ‘Chrono Shredder’ provides a palpable (or pulp-able?) physical reminder that all things are temporary, and we can never wind back time in this world.
Each day slowly shreds in realtime so that minute changes are visible even on an hourly or second-to-second basis if one is watching closely.

Ukrainian watchmaker Valerii Danevych creates extraordinary timepieces that, with the exception of a metal spring, are completely made of wood. These awesome watches are beautiful to behold and completely functional. 

Valeri comes from a family of wood carvers in Kiev and began to learn the art of wood carving in childhood. Fascinated by clock mechanisms, he began building wooden clocks, wristwatches, and pocket watches in 2005. Made of birch, Valeri’s amazing timepieces can store up to 20 hours of reserve power. The level of detail - all those tiny little parts - is truly astonishing.

Visit Valerii Danevych’s website to view more of his incredible wooden watches.
