Like with watches there’s really no reason to buy a standalone clock these days unless it’s for reasons of fashion or design. So it’s no surprise we’re seeing more and more clocks that push form over functionality, like this ZER00:00 clock for example. Created by WAT from the Netherlands it’s as minimal as a digital clock can possibly get since it’s comprised of only a circuit board and a basic 4 character LCD display.
In fact it doesn’t even include a way to stand on its own and instead relies on a 9-volt battery connected to the back to remain upright. And while I don’t see any buttons I assume there has to be at least one somewhere on the clock for setting the time. (FYI it doesn’t include any date functions.)
The ZER00:00 Digital Clock is available from Charles & Marie for a very unminimalistic price of $40. But at least you have the choice of either a butterfly or tree branch design on the front.
