Space Time

Take a journey beyond time and space and enter... the Third Dimension!

This out-of-this-world clock evokes a child's colorful imaginings of outer space adventures. A ringed, purple planet floats popup-style above an orange sky filled with asteroids and little flying saucers. Designed by Paul Ocepek, the image is laser cut from plywood, and printed with non-toxic, water-based inks. The final sanding and assembly is all done by hand. Mechanism made in USA; clock handmade in Massachusetts.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

        Comments about PLANET CLOCK:

        I was thrilled when this clock went on sale. I knew the middle school kids in my class would love this fun clock, and I have the perfect place to display it!

        My order arrived very quickly and was well-packed. The clock was even more fun in person than in the photos provided on Uncommon Goods' website. I installed a brand-new AA battery, and...... Nothing happened. I took the battery out, looked at the back of the clock, and re-installed the battery. Still nothing happened. I tried a second battery thinking that perhaps the battery was defective, but the clock remained silent and still. What a huge disappointment! Not only do I have a useless (but cute) clock, I can't even exchange it because Uncommon Goods are sold out of them!

        I hope the maker will be able to send me a new mechanism so that I can keep the wooden part of the clock yet have it actually work as a clock should (That is, keep time!). My fear is that I'll have to return it to Uncommon Goods and never be able to replace it.

        Although the clock mechanism doesn't work, I feel as if this is a fluke - a one in a million chance - and the rest of the clock is really nicely made. I recommend the clock to others because I am a positive person who believes my clock is the only one with a problem. :)
