Derby University Fly Back Clock

The clock on top of Derby University’s north tower, was designed by children from Chellaston School, whose ideas were among those which contributed to the clock’s final design. The final clock design has a semi-circular face and only one sweep hand, to indicate both the hour and the minutes past.

The 4.2 metre long metal frame has a 0 at the bottom and 12 at the top of it, with hour markings in-between. The single hand will move along this length over each 12 hour period, instantly sweeping back to 0 to begin again once it reaches 12noon and midnight.
