Core-fave Sander Mulder (previously featured on core here and here), has just released Continue Time. The clock's second hand rotates around the minute hand, which rotates around the hour hand, creating a dynamic, kinetic sculpture that can, amazingly, still be read like a normal clock. Made of brass and aluminum, the clock is available from the designer in a limited edition of 25.

The idea for this design started with a move. Sander explains below:

While moving to a new house our clock was damaged severely in transport, to a point where it's minutes- and seconds pointer fell of the central axis, and where just laying in the transparent bubble cover. Witnessing the random patterns that occurred with the hour pointer still rotating, the first concept for the Continue Time clock was born.

See the clock in action in the following video, and view more photos after the jump!
