If you’re redecorating the office and are looking for a unique clock to sit on your desk, the Word Clock should fit the bill. Alternately, if you’re redecorating the bathroom and are looking for a towel rod that tells the time, the Word Clock would also be an appropriate choice.
Instead of a traditional clock face with moving hands or even a digital display, the Word Clock uses a couple of rotating cylinders to tell the time in phrases. The cylinder with the hours is pretty straightforward, but the other one listing the minutes is a bit on the verbose side. Instead of just saying 2:55 for example, the clock would be read as ‘five minutes to three’ and so forth. The minute phrases are listed in 5-minute increments so the clock is fairly accurate, but I wouldn’t recommend it for timing a marathon or anything like that.
The Word Clock is currently available from Amazon for $122.88.
