The Epitome of Precision
The Hourglass is a true engineering feat.

Blown from a single piece of borosilicate glass, the final shape is achieved with high level of accuracy

It contains millions of tiny solid spheres made of stainless steel coated with fine gold or silver. Each and every one is precisely 0.6mm in diameter

When the Hourglass is inverted, the precision balls fall and bounce in an erratic but truly mesmeric way.

Marc Newson’s signature is applied onto every Hourglass as they leave our workshop in Basel, Switzerland

"The Hourglass is all about time but in a more esoteric and fundamental way. I was thinking of having fun with time." Marc Newson
