Timeball after the feb 22nd 2011 Earthquake

 The Timeball is one of only 5 in the world, and got smacked pretty hard in the Feb 22nd earthquake. They were in the process of dismantling it so that it could be re-constructed, when the June 13th earthquake demolished it.

Luckily they had digitally mapped it, so we hope they can re-assemble the jigsaw, and repair the broken bits to rebuild it.
