Guest Picks: Do You Have the Time?
Maybe it's the school teacher in me who wants to account for every moment in the classroom, or maybe it's the memories of classroom boredom, but I spend a lot of time looking at clocks. Too often it's a blaze of neon red and clunky electronic design telling me to get up in the morning. A clock can be the most interesting thing in the room, and anything that goes on my wall should be a piece of art. This collection has everything from word-centric, to number-oriented, to portable, to simply bare styles. Whether you're wasting time or contemplating time, you'll be wanting to watch the seconds tick by on all of these timepieces. — Mariko from The Little Foodie
Qlocktwo, Cherry Cake - $1,100
This clock is way, way, way out of my budget, but I still want to sit here and stare at it. Maybe I can just frame a print of it and put it on my wall and pretend. You can pick up one of seven languages of the Qlocktwo.
Black Clock - $349
This one is a knockoff of the Qlocktwo, but it's more affordable. As an English teacher I love that they've focused on the language of time.
Alessi 24H Sentence Maker Wall Clock - $167
I wish I could divide my day into important themes such as these. The 24-Hour Sentence Maker clock could start your next poem.
DCI Matte Black Powder Coated Metal Mathematics Blackboard Pop Quiz Clock - $21.55
This made me scratch my head for a moment or two. I can think of a few math teachers that would love to have this hanging on the wall.
The shadows and delicate look of this clock are only topped by the fact that it is an animated 3-D show.
Reilly Modern Wall Clock by Pilot Design - $89
The typography style of this clock almost looks like a flower, which makes it my favorite in the collection.
Kikkerland Big Wheel Revolving Wall Clock - $76.48
I love the revolving cog. I feel like I just opened up an old clock tower.
Don't we only need the numbers that matter, anyway? I appreciate a creative watch, and the band is a perfect complement to the simple design.
This touch-screen pocket watch is the marriage of the old and the new. I would save precious pocket space for such a watch.
I love a no-frills design when it comes to wearing a clock. This large-face watch comes in 10 different colors too.
Tree-Ring Table Clock - $90.94
For a little piece, this clock still looks bold and broad. It's small enough that I can imagine taking it with me on a road trip.
Nixie Ramos Alarm Clock - $350
The Ramos clock is an ingenious way to get you out of bed in the morning: It requires you to type in a code on a separate remote. No more snooze buttons for those of you who need an extra nudge.
Cotton Clock - $529
Even though I could never afford it, I am impressed by the unlikely material of this clock. The pattern and crotchet make it homey while still amazingly chic.
'Paradigm' Abstract Metal Wall Art Home Decor Clock - $299
Now here's a clock that really is a piece of art. This aluminum metal sculpture is a sunny piece for a modern space.
Modern Wall Clock Decor, 'Blue Metal' - $260
Not only does the striking color contrasted with brushed aluminum grab me, but the shape of this clock is one I'd like to see more of as well. A rectangular piece like this could sit more in sync with the frames already lining your walls.
Pill Clock, Natural Wood - GBP 245
This clock is simple with a surprising curve in the wood. I love the grain and shadow in it.
Sunburst Clock, Oak - GBP 223.20
George Nelson's sunburst design never gets old. Here, his clock is lightened up by the oak rays.
Arlecchino Clock, Black & White - GBP 212
The shape and pattern of this clock look almost digitized and would make an interesting distortion, especially if you have white walls.
Diamantini & Domeniconi Nature Pendolo Clock, Wood - GBP 169
When my husband saw this clock he immediately said it resembled a Barbara Hepworth sculpture. In other words, if I get this, I will definitely have some art hanging on the wall.
