3. Goldfish X Clock
Instead of looking at a boring, round wall clock with numbers, you can buy amazing wall clocks that feature graceful goldfish swimming.
The Goldfish X clock features nine swimming goldfish. In Eastern culture, the number nine represents good fortune. Goldfish symbolize luck and wealth.
Bring some good luck into your daily life with this goldfish x clock.
These resin goldfish are beautifully crafted and will look elegant on any wall.
To install, simply look at the underside of each goldfish. You’ll find a number. Each fish has an adhesive strip that you can peel off to paste the fish in order on your wall.
4. Tourbillon Watch
A tourbillon watch is one of the most expensive watches available for purchase. What is a tourbillon you ask?
Traditional, mechanical watches are made up of a hairspring and a balance wheel. But gravity may sometimes make these watches inconsistent at timekeeping.
On the other hand, a tourbillon watch has an escapement in a rotating cage rather than being in a fixed position. That means that gravity has no effect on the time because the cage negates the effects of uneven gravity.
Besides their accuracy, these watches are a study on craftsmanship and mechanics. With this little number on your wrist, you will have a complex piece of machinery on your hand.
So if you are a stickler for accurate timekeeping, or just want the prestige of owning a pricey watch, you may want to consider a tourbillon.
5. Melting Clock
