Hourglass Clock

“The Hourglass Clock is a clock like no other. Designed by David Dear, this modern clock displays the time as the top and bottom rotate independantly of each other. The passing seconds are displayed by the spinning circle on the top surface of the clock. This clock is 6.5″ high by 4.75″ in diameter and operates on one AA battery (not included).”

About Time Clock

This is perhaps one of the more ingenious designs of time-telling, allowing for (or reminding us to have) some flexibility in our schedules.

Poetry in motion, this innovative clock reveals the passing of time by rolling around your desk and telling time in one long continuous sentence.Designed in reaction to our stressed lives, where we tend to plan our daily activities to the minute, this clock simply tells you ‘It’s about six o’clock’ or ‘it’s almost seven now’.

Operates on AA batteries.

Jacob, Jones and Brown by Furni

This clock is made of a nice walnut and is really simply a nice piece. I especially like the placement of the clock mechanism. We take these things for granted, but some people just really know how to execute scale and proportion really well. And that is the Furni guys in a nutshell.

Not to mention, if you were to buy one of these clocks, I would honestly say that you were buying a clock from the absolute nicest guys.

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).”
