Clock Shots

A place to rock with your clock (or other time piece) out.

Here’s a clock suitable for the season if you’re in the northern hemisphere. Find one soon and you’ll be a little warmer for 2014.
Siren Elise Wilhelmsen, a Norwegian designer, created the 365 Knitting Scarf; a piece that turns wool into wear over twelve months. Until time becomes tangible (if only), this is the next best thing.

It’s been a while since I updated this (and, if honest, it’s probably going to a while before I update it again), but in the meantime, here’s Patrick Stewart (from his Twitter) messing about with some Christmas lights — featuring a familiar clock on the mantle behind him. If it’s good enough for Captain Picard…

Marvellous news! I’m glad the Doctor/clock-combo love has spread to an extra wall. Let me know if it makes the TARDIS noise on the hour — I suspect not, but there’s always hope.

Not all classic style is Soviet; these are three 1930s JAZ pieces from France. There’s nothing I can say about them apart from gah and unf. I’d love any of them on my mantle.

Trivia titbit: JAZ clocks were the first to feature numerals and hands that glowed in the dark.

One last Soviet piece for now. A wonderful travel alam clock by Slava, with sharp hands and numerals that have definitely had their Weetabix.

Three examples of alarm clocks made by Vitjaz, from the U.S.S.R., with a simple, art deco feel to them.

Another Majak piece; wood instead of crystal this time, but still with very stylised numerals. Yum.
Unless you&#8217;re completely unaware of the purpose a clock has, it won&#8217;t be much of a surprise that one of my favourite shows is Doctor Who. Until I can steal my own TARDIS, Unicorn Empire on Etsy has a beautiful alternative.
