Clearly inspired by Dali’s paintings, the melting time warp shelf clock gives a new touch to time keeping. Although given its appearance, we refuse to believe that the clock simply means to show time. We suspect ulterior motives, wormholes, magic, armageddon, and a whole lot more conspiracy theories. costs $12. Via ProductPage
Chain Clocks are somewhat complex, but mostly intriguing timepieces with a very simple display.

So you’re talking to someone, and can’t help glancing at the watch every now and then… awkward. Even if the idea was to just keep a check on time, glancing at the watch during a conversation does make it socially awkward. Using a subtle touch to know the time, well that trick ought to work. [...]
Mhin clock by Irish designer James Tobin is made in ceramic, rubber and metal. It shows time without actually showing time. The hour and minute hands move with simple mechanic precision, going linearly so you don’t have a constant ticking reminder of time flowing by, thus the idea of showing time with an inherent ambiguity.
Being punctual is a virtue that goes undervalued, because no one is on time to appreciate it. That however, does not deter many from staying true to the clock, right down to the second. These saintly souls can indulge their passion further, by getting hold of an atomic clock to ensure that even seconds don’t [...]
For a dozen different reasons, we like to trouble ourselves with obnoxious, loud noises in the morning to wake us up.
