Ghost Clock

While this clock is on a slight backorder, I do believe it will be worth the wait. And, honestly, the price really isn’t all that bad either.

“A stunning interpretation of the traditional carriage clock, the Ghost Clock features ornate white etching and Roman numerals on the glass front, an intricate, visible chrome mechanism, and a reflective mirror backing. Its ample size makes it a prominent addition to a mantle or furnishing. Simple assembly required. Takes one AA battery (not included).”

black hands wall clock

For those of you that want nothing but the essentials, these hands will certainly help you tell the time minimalistically. Is that a word? Or, you could get creative and make your own markers for each hour. You could also perhaps go to your local hardware or craft store and get something similar for less, but who wants to do that when there’s the ease of online shopping?

Short hand measures 16″; long hand is 21″. Black, powder-coated metal. Uses one AA battery, not included.

Everlab Clock

A conceptual clock, of sorts…
“A circle is the locus of all points equidistant from a central point. There’s a theory that if you can draw a circle, you can draw anything. everlab, in its quest to merge art and science, now brings to you the one-hour circle. Portable, adhesive, and battery-powered, the one-hour circle creates a perfect pencil orbit in sixty minutes. Available in a range of aesthetically appealing colours, the everlab one-hour circle can bring a little bit of mathematical perfection to every room in the house.” Via Core77.

SongBook radio (red)

This little baby has everything you need to get out of bed in the morning (except a cup of coffee). It’s a radio and a digital alarm clock in one, with auto/manual tuning and 5 station presets, as well as an auxiliary input jack for other devices (like a CD player or MP3 player) just in case you need that too. An external power supply is included or you might choose to use the rechargeable battery-powered option. My favorite part is color options- it’s available in the nice red you see here, or black, white, and yellow.

Also, it’s casing is made of weather resistant rubber.

Cuckoo Clock

A modern take on an old theme: a lacquered metal frame features the favorite deers and trees of the traditional cuckoo clock. I’ve never thought I would put a cuckoo clock in my home (brings to mind plastic-covered upholstery and taxidermy for some reason), but I think this one has changed my mind.

Hmm…if I had this I would probably be able to tell that a category 5 hurricane was headed in my direction. Which it is, and I sure hope it doesn’t hurt anything or anyone too badly.
