Attracted to time

Who here remembers Harry? That lovable toy consisting of a cartoon picture of a bald man that you would move magnetic shaving around and create your own hair style and beards? Well that is the basic principal behind this pocket watch concept by Li Jianye. “Time Sand” takes a magnetized minute and hour hands and attracts the help of metal shavings (powdered iron) to display the time. Just shake up the watch and find out what time it is.
