World Time Clock


Charlotte Van Der Waals' World Time Clock is an example of design that is thoughtful and ingenious. The clock manages to convey multiple timezones in a single clock face without the use of buttons, gimmicks and well, technology. Just roll the clock so that the desired city etched on the sides is on top. 12 sides with 2 cities per side represent the 24 global time zones.

Available at Junro.

Great, up until you care about minutes :)

Truly amazing, so simple that its hard to believe that this is the first world clock that works this way....pure genius


Now why didn't I think of that?? Do'h !


They should mount the minute hand on a rotating platform (is gimbal the word?) so that it'd always be correct. Still, really cool.


Only problem - my children (23 and 17 yrs old) can't read anything but a digital clock, so this great clock, lacking numerals, will be even more inscruitable to them.


You've got to be joking; a 23 and 17 year old can't read an analog clock?
