Sign of the Times
When you look at the dial of an ordinary clock, your brain transforms numbers and symbols into words and meaning without a second thought. But this eye-catching timepiece skips a step, displaying the hours and minutes in conversational English. That short-circuiting of the expected adds a little buzz of delight that transforms this clock into a conversation starter and functional work of art. The display changes with old-fashioned flip tiles, which adds retro charm to the contemporary look. Its large size and handsome bamboo frame make it a visual focal point on a desk or mantle, or hung on the wall.
