This clock was design for my granddad Gordon Brand. His is retired with my grandma and one thing they enjoy is painting. One image especially my granddad enjoys to paint is the sunrise from outside his window. So every morning when he gets up he tries to check the sunrise to see if its worth painting. This clock is designed to help him get that image. The clock will starts when there is 20 minutes till the sunrise and the ticking of the clock will wake grandma up because she cannot sleep with the ticking and granddad will be awake for his picture. Lights are a backup for no grandma.
