His hourglass is hand blown from one single piece of borosilicate glass filled with an incredible amount of tiny nano balls each coated in different material (black stainless steel, stainless steel, copper, and yellow gold). In fact, each large hourglass contains eight million nano balls to mark the passing of 60 minutes, while the smaller version which marks 10 minutes contains 1.2 million nano balls. When the glass is inverted, the nano balls trickle beautifully from the top bulb down to the bottom bulb. Now how to get a wrist watch size.
