Wall Clocks

Unfinished Clock

Seeing as the rectangle version is no longer available, you might want to snap up the round version quick if it’s your sort of thing. (I know I like it, but have waay too many clocks to add any more to my collection.)

This atypical version of a typical clock is designed to be displayed at the edge of a shelf or mantel. Eye-catching, it appears to be only the top half of a clock, but the hands fully rotate. Made of powder-coated steel with aluminum hands. One AA battery included.

Size: Round: 5.25h x 8w x 2.75″d
Rectangle no longer available

Word Clock

Who needs numbers to tell the time? Certainly not anyone who has this word clock.

The clock consists of two adjacent rolls, contained in a clear acrylic tube. A red mark indicates the line that should be read to tell the time. The left roll spells out five minute increments of time. The right roll contains the numbers one to twelve, spelled out. The gearing is such that as the minutes turn to “twenty-five minutes to,” the hour roll advances.

Designer: Hans Muller and Hans van Dongen
Materials: Acrylic, plastic.
Dimensions: 24″ x 4″

‘Just A Moment’ Clock

This is a different sort of way to tell the time…

By creating a sequence of analog hours, minutes and seconds, the ‘Just a Moment’ clock both allows us to focus on each chronometric subdivision and forces us to reconsider the familiar angular relationships and shapes of a concentric clock’s hands. Wall-mountable.

Requires 3 AA batteries, not included.
15.75″ x 6″
Aluminum.

No longer available.

Three-Face Wall Clock

Hmm, this reminds me of the Just a Moment Clock in theory. The black discs are nice in that you can position them however you’d like.

The elements of time are broken down into three separate black disks with numbers to indicate hours, minutes, and seconds and can be positioned on the wall as you like. Made in Italy of painted wood. Three AA batteries included.

Designer: Dario Serio, 2008
Size: Hours disk: 1.75d x 7.5″diam; Minutes disk: 1d x 9.5″diam;

Swiss Railway Clock

Precise time keeping is this clock’s claim to fame. Simple bold graphics work like a charm.

Based on railway engineer Hans Hilfiker’s 1940s classic, the Swiss Railway Station Clock is a standard throughout European train stations, with over 3,000 clocks keeping precision time.
The straightforward black and white face with a red second hand is easy to read from a distance. Made by Mondaine with a brushed steel case and German clock movement, the clock was included in the Museum’s Tempo exhibition.

One AA battery is required (not included) for the 10″ clock. Two AA batteries are required for the 15.75″ clock, which can also be run using the included AC adapter.
Small: 10″ diam., $195.00
Large: 15.75″ diam., $395.00

(Also, forgive me for being a bit Cayce Pollard-esque, but isn’t this so much better?)

Solar Clock

No batteries? Yes please.

Like its friend the Sun Jar, this handy solar powered clock is handsome as it is practical and eco-friendly. With a smart and simple solar panel on its front it’s a far cry from the days of those dodgy calculators you had to crouch under a bright light to use. But as well as being functional this little clock has a clean and unfussy design that lets you stand it up whichever way you want. To boot, its solar power means that you’ll never be caught in the twilight zone wondering what the time really is after a night-time power cut.

Adrian Allen
Supplied with two sets of hands (long & short) to give you the options of wall mounted or free standing.

Hands and Classic Hands Clocks

Floating hands tell the time in either classic or modern styling. Be sure to take note of the dimensions though, they’re pretty big.

The ultimate in simplicity, this clock has been stripped down to its most essential element- its hands. Striking, modern, minimal and functional.

Solar System Wall Clock

While some of you might firmly put this clock into the ‘for-science-type-kids’ folder, I think it could work in a less-serious/non-stuffy modern interior…so anyways, here’s the main question, if this other clock is the same one, then why the big price difference? The hands look a tiny bit different, and the ‘brushed silver’ frame of course, but as far as the face and size it’s the same. (Can you tell I get annoyed when there are price discrepancies?)

Debate the classification of planets while being punctual…The black face is silk screened with planetary bodies and their orbits, all centered around the sun.

Nextime World LED Clock

Timeless Clock

Does this clock have way too much going on or not enough? Or is it ‘just right’?

This mesmerizing clock is not as timeless as its name implies. Look closely and the numbers 3, 6, 9, and 12 will give you a good idea of the hour. But, based on aesthetics alone, the name may just be appropriate after all.

Designer: Pascal Tarabay
