COLOR CLOCK
Fluid color. Precision time.
PURCHASE THE UNIVERSAL COLOR CLOCK
*A maximum of six mints can be purchased at once
**This is a randomized mint.
You will be assigned a minute based on the algorithm of the mint.

The UC Clock displays 1440 different hues, one for each minute of the day.

Each mint is tethered to a specific randomly assigned minute of the day. All 1440 NFTs display the color clock in its entirety and the specific minute that each NFT is tethered to will appear brighter and more saturated during that minute than the rest of the clock. This enables you to own a unique color, exclusive to your NFT, that correlates to a distinct minute in the 24-hour clock.
The Universal Color Clock can be viewed on any device with a browser, projected on the wall, or with any number of available custom NFT viewers or frames.
