I always keep an eye out for sprial clock dial designs as it has always seemed to be a great way to make longer term dials on a clock face. Jaeger-LeCoultre does it with a 1000 year dial on a limited edition run of their Atmos Du Millenaire Atlantis (seen below). But the video above from a team in London called Aspiral is the first successful use of the spiral I have seen that allows you to know which rung of the spiral you should read. Very fun.
