Share Article

Two friends from Athens, Greece, aim to build the most valuable clock in the world, by selling online its time off to advertisers and individuals in order to make them eternal time owners for 0,10$ per second.

Kostas Harto and George Roumis, two 28-year-old unemployed friends from Greece, are hoping to make history and money in a bold way, by selling time through their freshly launched online clock,, second by second.

"We found out that is pointless to keep searching for a regular job in our country at this time, because of the economical crisis.So we decided to try a crazy idea instead of just waiting or leave our country," Harto explains.

The vision of the creators is to make Clockular a record breaker as the world's most valuable clock ever made and write Web history with the help of time owners, businesses or individuals. "Common online clocks are somehow popular enough anyway, so imagine a crowd sourced, record-breaker wannabe clock based on a quirky idea. It could be famous worldwide, just depending on people's curiosity,'' Roumis believes.

The total time available for sale is a full year's time. After and if all the year's seconds are sold, each Time Owner "locks" a time-specific place in the clock forever. Until then, the images will be displayed in a continuous loop. After buying Clockular's time, the owner can use this time to display an image linked to a website and the name provided replaces the letter ''U'', on Clockular's slogan "It's U o'Clock".

Harto believes that over time the seconds will offer great commercial value because the clock will be kept online for at least three years,although the aim is to have it up for as long as possible."Our goal is to keep it up forever so even the grandchildren of the time owners will have the opportunity to watch it,'' Harto explains and continues: " If we could generate some interest and make Clockular recognizable and famous worldwide, people will be checking the clock for years to come, and even a little time investment now, seems like a big opportunity for long-term benefits."

Except for businesses, an individual can be a time owner on Clockular too, either for himself or to use the gift option to make a unique and romantic gift to someone. "An impressive and timeless gift much less expensive than a diamond ring. Time itself. We made wrapping Time up in a present's package a possibility," Roumis says.

Although is online for just a few days, the first minutes of the clock are already sold to websites, bussineses and individuals. Living in the social media era, a groundbreaking idea like this can prove that ''time is money'' for real.
