Catch the Wave

Time and tide may wait for no one, but these playful tide clocks help you to keep an eye on both. From designer Alan Winick, these seaworthy, framed clocks display two, rounded faces.

The first is a tide clock, which tracks the ocean's twelve-hour cycle from high tide to low tide and back. The second window gives a charming visual representation of the changing water levels, with an illustration from watercolorist Greg Stones. As the tide goes out, the level of water in the picture drops as well, revealing more of the seaside image underneath.

This unique piece is the perfect complement for any coastal home—or for the landlocked soul who dreams of the sea! Handmade in Westport, Connecticut.

AlanWinick

With a background in marine biology, philosophy, and a bit of engineering thrown in, Alan Winick interests as an inventor span a wide range of disciplines. His inventions include a baby toy, a rescue device for racing sailboats, and a one-man submarine, among others. He believes that everyone is an inventor, and has at one time or another thought of ways to make or do something in a better way. What distinguishes himself from others is the willingness, the insanity if you will, to try and actualize the idea.
