Hublot to Follow Lego Guy and Make Modern Day Antikythera

Never heard of an antikythera? Join the club. It seems interesting though and I'm going to be following any updates on the Lego and Hublot projects out of pure curiosity over at hodinkee

"The Antikythera Mechanism is the oldest known scientific computer, dating back to 100 BC.  Designed by the Greeks, all knowledge of the device was lost for 2000 years until it was rediscovered in 1901 on a shipwreck off the Greek Island of Antikythera.  Over a century later, we find out that the Mechanism is really one of the first mechanical devices designed to predict celestial events and eclipses.  In other words, it's a clock.  "
