Regular readers will know what a fan I am of alternative clocks and watches. Any way of spicing up the chore of time-telling has to be a good thing.
I didn’t come up with this idea when I created five concept watch designs, but I wish I had.
Called OV’L, this wall clock displays both the date and time on a series of concentric circles. The inner four circles display year, month, day and weekday, while the outer circles display hours, minutes and seconds.
I’m not entirely clear whether this clock really exists or not. Designer Stefan Vasilev is into graphic and logo design, so this could just be a concept.
In any case, it looks great, and I’d be really happy to have this on my wall. It might even cut down on the amount of time I spend looking at time passing. After all, I’d actually have to work out the time by studying the dashes, rather than simply being able to glance up and see a regular clock face.
