The massive 750,000 square-foot timepiece was run for a whole 24 hours using an army of large lorries.
Swedish automotive industry manufacturer Scania was certainly keen to impress recently when it decided to raise the stakes by constructing a working clock out of its own vehicles.
Situated in a disused airfield, the huge clock face consisted of fourteen identical trucks positioned in three separate lines to represent the second, minute and hour hands.
To make the second-hand of the clock function, the longest line of lorries had to be driven around in a perfect circle once every 60 seconds with each individual vehicle maintaining a constant speed.
The trucks making up the minute and hour hands meanwhile had to keep starting and stopping at set intervals to keep time with the second-hand trucks as they continued to circle around.
A video explaining in more detail how the stunt was pulled off can be viewed below.
