Clocks

Snooze

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve dropped my phone while trying to turn off my alarm in the mornings- it’s got to be in the hundreds by now (coordination is impaired when you’re half asleep, after all). That’s where this alarm dock comes in- it’s got a huge, functioning snooze bar that’s easily hit when you want just a few more minutes of shut eye.

Gomitolo Knit Clock

Hmm, here’s something interesting. For once, a product posted years ago (2008) has actually gone down in price, from $575 to $325. And yes, your eyes are correct, the Gomitolo clock has a soft ecru knit cotton cover: a sweater, if you will, for your time keeping device. The cover can be removed and washed as needed.

Felt35 Wall Clock

Made of felt, eh? Sounds nice, but what’s even nicer is that it’s made out of 60% recycled PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) felt. The PET felt helps with sound dampening and adds a soft texture to your time spot. Choose white, grey, or orange hands.

Verbarius Electronic Clock

It’s your birthday! Well, it probably isn’t, but if you were one of the many (all 3 of you) that emailed in after we posted this clock forever ago, wondering where you might be able to purchase it stateside, you can now pretend it is your birthday, because MoMA Store has the Verbarius in stock. Keep your pants on, it only took five years. If you’re not familiar, the Verbarius replaces numbers with words using one of five preloaded languages: English, German, Spanish, French, and Russian. Extra points to you if you decide to freshen up your foreign language skills by switching it up every now and then.

Jensen Koppel Clocks

If you’re in the market for a classic wall clock, and would like something quite small and elegant, do turn your eyes toward the collection of timepieces designed by Henning Koppel for Jensen. Choose between the 10cm (~4″) or 15cm (~6″) size, stainless steel or black stainless steel, and white or black dial. Also, you can save your pennies in hopes of one day adding a barometer, thermometer, and hygrometer alongside the clock for a full collection of weather instruments. Also, do you know (or can you guess) which decade these clocks were designed? Was it the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s or 2000+? Answer below.

Recycled Moon, Thermometer and Time Clock

If you sell seashells by the seashore, you’d do well to have a clock that keeps track of the tide. This recycled (made from vending machine coffee cups) clock has temperature and time as well, so you’ll have all the information you need when you set out. Weather proof.

Alarm Dock, Color

The Alarm dock by Jonas Damon is now available in all sorts of bright hues: blue, green, orange, pink, red, and yellow. Don’t worry, though, there’s still the original in beech wood ($40) as well as the black and white versions. You’ll have to be patient for the color options, as the approximate ship date is early July.

One45 Wall Clock

Perhaps this would be a not-so-subtle reminder to be on time, either for yourself or for a loved one (because at that price you aren’t going to buy it for a coworker). At almost 18 inches wide, it would be hard to ignore, and with convex glass and a slim appearance, it is definitely easy to admire.

Chalkboard Kitchen Clock

So, take note that ‘kitchen’ is in the title of this clock. We can all probably agree it’s a more casual item intended for use as a little family message center rather than an timepiece meant for a super modern sleek living area. It used to be $248 (yeesh!) but now has the slightly friendlier price tag of $99.95. It’s chalkboard, so of course you can write in your own numbers or notes, but what particularly stands out is it has two pullout holders for the chalk and eraser, making sure the tools are hidden yet at-the-ready.

Weather Master Wall Clock

Whenever it rains (as it is now) the thought of a hygrometer comes to mind, as if I’d actually pay attention to the humidity levels. If you’re more committed to understanding weather pattens than I, perhaps you’d use a combination thermometer and hygrometer wall clock? It’s not water proof (pity), so do be careful about where you place it… perhaps a covered patio area or porch? There’s also a few variations in color and design (see below).

Punkt AC01 Alarm Clock

United Kingdom-based designer Jasper Morrison presents a modern spin on the traditional analog alarm clock that’s so striking in its simplicity and aesthetics that it’ll make you want to ditch your cell phone as your alarm clock. A clever manual switch activates the alarm and the status will be clearly displayed on the dial. A gentle squeeze of the clock illuminates the face. Glow-in-the-dark hands displays the time in any light setting. These very user-friendly features coupled with a solid aluminum casing and scratch-resistant glass lens makes for a properly designed and lust-worthy object.

Furni has a few new versions of their Alba Me clock, and they just might tempt you to change out your existing alarm. Why, you ask? Well, how about some felt covering a sleek little black box? Or, a nice grey concrete shell with a grey metal grill? Watch the video for a quick visual on the Alba Me clock, and then check out the versions to see for yourself.

4th Dimension Concrete Clock

It’s fair to say that there aren’t many clocks made of concrete. Though this particular hand made wall clock is striking in its choice of materials, I wonder just how heavy it is and what would be the means of securing it to the wall. The play of light and shadow would be interesting as it changes with time, for sure.
