    What is a tracing sheet in the US? Is it like tissue paper or stronger? Tissue paper fades quickly - at least the stuff here.

    Also, is the point of the magnets just to attach it to the locker in the photo? They aren't needed to make the clock run are they? You could use a stick on photo hanger depending on the weight or am I off base?

    A Tracing sheet is a tracing sheet pretty much anywhere.
    As for the magnet it is just to denote the 12 on the clock and to hang it.

    Well, that's not a clock anymore, is it? I mean: a clock shows time, but I just can't imagine how this Stylish Pattern Clock would work if the dials are tied together, please explain it to me.

    It is a properly working clock and the dials and not tied up,they are just connected together by a tracing sheet.Tracing sheets can bend easily and will twine and un twine every 2 hours on its own.

    It works like a normal clock:- The long hand shows the minutes and short hand shows the hours.The rest is just decoration which doesn't affect the working of the mech.


    Sure,It all depends on your creativity and how you want it to look.
    I made it this way,you can tweak it how much ever you want!
