This is a brake disc from a real car, re-created into a desk clock. The purpose of a brake disc on the car, is to spin with the wheels as the car drives down the road. Immense pressure is then squeezed onto the brake disc from both sides - that's what slows down the car.
As you can imagine, the brake disc clock has a heavy, solid feel to it, being designed to do a tough and important job.
When Ben's Automotive Decor gets hold of the donor disc, it goes through an extensive cleaning process. After the raw metal is cleanly exposed, it is re-designed into a desk clock, and coated with a lacquer. This seals and protects the finish perfectly.
As the parts vary in size, the finished product can vary from 8-14 inches in diameter. If there is a certain size you are looking for, please get in touch and we can likely accommodate the request.
There is a battery cover on the back of the clock, that is easily removed when it is necessary to replace the battery.
As the brake disc clock is made to order, please note that each piece varies slightly, and the picture is a representation of the design.
Processing time for a brake disc clock is up to 5 business days for the build. It is then shipped via USPS or FedEx. It may be possible to expedite the process - please contact me if this is necessary.
