Knowhere clock

KnowWhereClock.jpg

I'm not very good at keeping world timezones straight and I'm always triple-checking the World Time Server to make sure it's not too late to call London or too early to call New York. Sometimes I wish I could have several clocks mounted on the wall.

The Knowhere Clock takes care of all that with one simple clock-face and multiple hands. I can imagine the clock-face would take some getting used to, seeing as it has 24 hours mapped out clockwise (with midnight marked at the usual "12" position and noon at the usual "6" position). But that also makes it really easy to figure out if the timezone you're thinking of is "ahead" or "behind" you in time.

The Knowhere Clock works by having multiple hands to designate the different timezones. The Cosmos version comes with a blue clock-face and cut-out hands representing eight of the world's major cities. You know, the usual: the Statue of Liberty for New York, the Eiffel Tower for Paris, the Statue of Christ the Redeemer for Rio de Janeiro, and so on.

Then there's the more personal You & Me version, with a pink clock-face (yes, more pink!) and eight hands: one marked "You", one marked "Me" and six blank ones with a marker to write on them. Good for keeping track of friends and family scattered around the world, especially as in my case, when they're fairly nomadic and switch timezones every so often.

Finally, there's the simple One World version: white clock-face, eight hands and a bunch of labels, some blank, some with city names. It combines the best of the other two versions, I suppose, without the readily identifiable cut-out hands of the Cosmos. Best for those who like things Apple-esque clean and stark.

Pick up the Knowhere Clock for $79 from Generate.
