The Swiss railway station clock is a symbol for Swiss high precision and reliable punctuality. It's second hand moves continuously around the face and pauses for 1.5 seconds at the 12 mark (stop-to-go technique). In order to compensate for this interruption, the second hand is accelerated to require a mere 58.5 seconds for one revolution, thus maintaining time precision. The clock design is simple, clear and readable at a glance. It holds black hour and minute hands on a white background without hour numbers printed. The eye-striking red second hand is recognizable from larger distances and formed as a replica of the station manager's trowel. Ever since developed by Swiss engineer, inventor and Swiss Federal Railways (Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen, SBB) employee Hans Hilfiker (1901-1993) in 1944, the Swiss railway station clock has never changed its face and became a part of national identity which explains its high popularity. It can be found more than 3,000 times across Switzerland. This application adopts the Swiss railway station clock drawn by the author with Photoshop. The algorithm for the motion of the red second hand is courtesy of Klaus Christl, Switzerland. Klaus also contributed most of the beautiful wallpaper photos of Swiss landscapes.
