Clocks keep you informed on the passing of time. That’s sort of their whole point. Generally speaking, it keeps you updated on the 24 hour day. For those that want to see the bigger picture, pick up the Present Clock, the clock that ticks of the days in the year.
This is an analog clock that looks like some sort of chromatic art piece. Don’t be fooled by the spectrum of color on its face, these subtle color changes correspond with the seasons. Instead of quarter hours, the clock keeps track of the coming equinoxes and solstices giving you an idea of the full year as the single hand makes it way around the face, just as you make your way through the year.
This clock won’t give you a date and there’s no way it’s telling you what time it is unless you’re wondering how close you are to being able to stand an egg straight up on a table. The clock runs on 2 AA batteries. If you’re looking for a way to remind yourself of the steady but slow passage of time, check out the Present Clock for $200.
