Designed by Nazar Şigaher and crafted from laser-cut anodized aluminum, Meyer Objects‘ unique wall clock extends its hour and minute hands into an outer frame, creating an ever-changing piece of wall art with each passing minute of the day. Sadly, it’s also priced like a work of art.
THE BEST Clocks
Fans of daytime game shows will immediately recognize the background of Dragon Vision’s playful wall clock. Inspired by Wheel of Fortune, the 8″ acrylic and printed vinyl clock features prize denominations instead of hours on its dial. Just be sure to avoid 12:30 and 5:30.
This unique clock from ChronoCo tells time in two ways at once. The pointer travels around the dial like a normal hour hand, floating over precise markers, while its back end indicator window displays time in 10 minute increments. Measures 500mm (appx. 19.7″) in diameter, and features a weathered look.
We’ve seen lots of clocks that use Nixie or other illuminated vacuum tubes. But we really dig this version where the entire time is displayed on a single tube. Pandicon’s IV-18 clock uses a new, old stock VFD tube to emit it’s greenish-blue glow. You can find more IV-18 clocks from other Etsy shops.
Douk Audio’s unique desk clock uses an old-school vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) to produce a cool greenish glow. It shows the current time using analog-style hands, and has an optional second hand. Made from sturdy CNC molded aluminum, and measures 2.87″ x 2.28″ x 0.87″.
Instead of sourcing vintage nixie tubes, Millclock made its own tubes for its ZIN18 clock. The handmade tubes are longer, more durable, and are rated to last for 200,000 hours of operation. The clock can be controlled via its touchpad or companion mobile app.
It’s time to kick some ass with this wall clock from WHENWATCH. The clock features an unspecified martial artist obviously based on Bruce Lee, whose body twists and turns to tell the time. His torso is the hour hand, his right leg tells minutes, and his left leg is seconds.
The Nixt IV-17 VFD Clock is a nixie tube clock with eight tubes and colorful LED footlights. Aside from telling time, it also displays the date and the ambient temperature. You can also set it to display a custom message. Check out Nixt’s other clocks and products here.
Instructables member oliverb made an Arduino-powered digital clock that has a fun mode. It can tell the time by playing Pong with itself, updating the score to accurately reflect the time. It can also show the time in large digits or with words. Learn how to make one here.
A simple, yet effective use of HAL 9000’s iconic red eye-light, printed as the face of an analog wall clock. While we wish it had an actual domed cover, the simulated reflections in the image provide an effective illusion of depth. Measures 10.25″ diameter x 2″ deep.
One of ThinkGeek’s April Fools jokes. This clock features a very accurate replica of the sun from one of the planets that Rick and the Smiths visited in Rick and Morty. When the alarm goes off, the sun comes up and then screams nonstop for 42 hours.
A slick modern take on the digital alarm clock. This Wi-Fi connected timepiece can display time, date, weather, notifications, IoT device statuses, stock quotes, and just about any other data. Use code USA20 for an extra 20% off in The Awesomer Shop (through 2/20/18).
The Circa alarm clock has an optional sleep sensor that will tell it to wake you up only when you’re in light sleep. It also comes with several soothing ambient noise tracks and a gentle pulsing light mode. You can also use it as a Bluetooth speaker and Internet radio.
A white-on-black version of Humans Since 1982’s segmented analog timepiece which offers the same 24 analog dials, but a bolder and easier to read display. It’s as amazing as ever, though we only wish it were more affordable. Measures 15.75″ h x 35.5″ w x 1.5″ d.
If Doc Ock had a pet, it would be this. This fantastical desk clock was inspired by a mix of octopi, marine timepieces, and The Abyss. It features eight articulated legs and a rotating glass sphere for its body which houses the clock’s movement. Limited to 150 pieces total.
