It is an “astrolabe” – an astronomical clock located in Prague, Czech Republic. Also referred to
as "The Prague Orloj".
Installed in 1410, it is the third oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest still in operation.
Well-built things last long, just like Deferral.com
The Astrolabe does many things simultaneously; from telling time and dates, tracking star locations (a primitive planetarium),
to charting the Sun (through the Zodiac) the Moon and equinoxes.
Four animated figures (Vanity, Miser, Lust and Death) flanking the clock are set in motion each hour.
Sculptures of the Apostles are also presented each hour.
It is an incredibly intricate set of interrelated gears and workings and aside from being unique in the world it is also beautiful,
precise (after 600+ years!) and useful.
All of the complex machinery comes together to produce a meaningful result, both predicting and confirming situations and outcomes.
