Record Time

Featuring laser-cut numbers and aluminum hands, this clock is formed from a real 45 rpm record--including the adapter used in the center of the record to get it to play! The vintage rock record is set on an acrylic stand to add a little audiophile flair to to tabletop, desktop or countertop. Handmade in Philadelphia. Takes one AA battery, not included. Sorry, no choice of artist.

        Great gift item for the person who has everything. Especially those who listened to music on vinyl!! This vinyl record shaped into a clock is very retro. Great for a family or game room! Appears to be an actual record made into a clock. AND we remember this song/artist, which makes it even better!

              I am unhappy with this item, and plan to return it. The workmanship is poor--the clock numbers on the 45 are rough and the stand is flimsy. I've seen similar items elsewhere of better quality. Definitely not worth $[$]

                Comments about 45 RPM CLOCK:

                I bought this for a friend who is a DJ as I thought he'd like it in his studio - but the song that they chose to send is a love song and totally inappropriate to give to my friend. I know they can't have people choose specific songs, but at LEAST have categories or 'who is this for' - Friend, Lover, Boss, etc. This would have been a great gift, but I'm going to have to return it and find something else for him.

                  I like this clock. It looks great and is very cool. I love the cutout numbers. I wish 2 things were different: I thought I'd be able to hang it on a wall. It seems as if it only comes with hardware for setting on a tabletop. Darn, I may have to adjust for that myself. Also, I wish you could choose from a list of artists / song titles. You just get what you get. It'd be nice to have some idea / choice.

                  Not impressed with what you get for the value of the money spent and not being able to request even what artist you wish the record to be from. There should be something behind the numbers so that you can see them from a distance because when being displayed on a shelf from across the room, you can't tell what time it is.

                    I bought this clock for my dad as he collects old LP's. He loves the clock and the band that were on it! I gave it to him for Christmas and the company did a great job gift-wrapping it and including my message to him.

                        Bought for nephew who LOVES music. I probably didn't read carefully, but thought it was a wall clock while indeed it is a desk clock. Next time I will work in advance enough to send in my own records.
