Clocks

We've shown you several Nixie tube clocks, chess sets, and thermometers over the years, but they all were steampunk in style.  Many of them were also kits that you needed to assemble yourself.  ThinkGeek has two Nixie tube clocks from Nuvitron that don't require assembly, and they aren't steampunk.  Both clocks use new old-stock tubes [...]

The words digital and sundial don't usually go together, but a French maker has changed that with a cool 3D printed sundial that "displays" the time like a digital watch. The way sundials traditionally work is that they cast a shadow from the sun across a dial with numbers. You have to read the number [...]

The Electrohome Retro Clock Radio may look like those clocks of yesteryear, but that's where the comparison ends. This clock has a digital display [...]

We remodeled our basement living room about 5 years ago and continue to decorate it with framed pictures and other items. One thing Jeanne and I could not find was the perfect clock. She wanted something unique and I wanted something more traditional and easy to see. Since we couldn't agree on one, we've settled [...]

This clock is designed to look like three planets orbiting a sun in a tiny solar system; it reminds me of the Emerald Observatory app for iPad that I wrote about years ago.  The clock face is rubberized, so it won't scuff as the planets move around to show the time.  The planets look like [...]

The face of the new Kisai Radioactive watch from Tokyoflash Japan looks like it could be the monitor display on a nuclear reactor.  The lights flash to display the time, and an animation mode will look like a constantly changing status display (can be turned off).  The case and band are made of brushed stainless steel, [...]

The ClockONE from Twelve24 is simple and beautiful. It's a wall mountable 39.37 x 13.78 inches (1000 x 350 mm) clock that features a digital display that uses E-ink. The clock runs for one year on one CR2450 button battery and mounts to the wall with a magnet. I love the look of it and [...]

Instead of interesting graphical displays, the latest Tokyoflash watch uses a word matrix to tell you the time or date.  The words needed to display the information flash on the face of the Kisai Kaidoku Wood watch, so you don't have to learn to decode a pattern to tell the time.  As a matter of [...]
