The flip flop
clock is an amazing retro clock that keeps
time exceptionally well. As opposed to other various styles and
models of clocks, the flip clock keeps track of time using an
analog display that flips each number forward as the minutes
and hours pass. As well as running on analog time, the flip
clock runs on a series of interlocking gears and mechanisms.
The gears can be powered by a motor or by winding the clock up.
The gears works similarly to other clocks because of the fact
that they keep time on an analog system.

face, a flip flop clock uses numbered flip cards to tell the
time. These flip cards cover one another as they flip through
minutes and hours. The flip cards have numbers printed on them,

clock must be wound forward twenty three hours since the flip
cards can only flip forward.
