    Can you guess what is this weird clock?

    Hi,


    I noticed this weird four hander last week in a public space. Took me some time to get how it is working and even some more time to understand what is its purpose.

    Did you ever see such a clock?

    If not, can you guess what's it for?

    Enjoy!

    Kind of reminds me of Sinn's EZM 12 Pulsrotor

    Isn’t this a pace clock we use in swimming pools?

    That's exactly what it is.

    Indeed. Never knew that it existed until last week. Guess I'm not much of a swimmer...

    Swimming is healthy! Get in the pool brother!

    Here's an explanation on a swimming pool pace clock. Enjoy.

    Re: Can you guess what is this weird clock?

    I don't understand the purpose; I swam on school teams until I was blue in the face but never saw a clock that didn't look like a standard clock.

    One thing when you swim on teams, you swim maybe four to six swimmers in a lane and you swim counter-clockwise, down the right side of the lane with the fastest swimmer in front.

    Perhaps the colored hands are to signal each swimmer to start on fifteen second intervals, that way, each swimmer looks at their colored hand for the elapsed time.

    Seems specious as we typically left on five second intervals and if you were not lead swimmer, it wasn't too hard to figure out your time (perhaps this is in a pool for the mentally challenged).
