QLOCKTWO Spells the Time
Analog, digital, and...lexicon? Sure, the clock has been reinvented numerous times by changing its size, shape, materials, buzzers, and style of numbers but the QLOCKTWO tries a new angle spelling out the time in words instead of hands and numbers. Handmade by Biergert & Funk with both German and English face plates, this stylish and unique clock is available in a wide spectrum of colors for $1,600. I like it as a vibrant piece of functional art that brings a modern edge to an old invention but you have to be willing to forgo the minute-by-minute updates since the time is only spelled out in five-minute increments.
