Whales, water, night-lights, and works of art: Spring forward with these awesome clocks #Shopping#clocks#decor March 7 2014 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin For some of us, Daylight Savings Time is this Sunday. I hate losing an hour, but I love when we gain it back! So to celebrate my favorite way to have my body's internal clock totally fucked with, I thought I'd round up some awesome clocks. We've got wall clocks that are decorative and some that pull double-duty. We've got water-powered alarm clocks. And clocks that are art, or art that is a clock. Either way, all of these made me go "Oh COOL!" So if you're looking for a new way to tell time, check out these guys… I'm in love with this mid century modern wall clock/work of art — $70 They say this LEGO clock is for kids. Pshaw. Kids don't have $24. I want one of these owl clocks in EVERY color — $28 ModCloth calls this the Bite Out of Time Clock, I call it the CROCK CLOCK! Get it — $45 This message clock is pretty freak sweet! A color-changing clock, with a message board, and 4 USB hubs for $15! The sheer number of amazing LEGO minifigure clocks just astounds me. You're SURE to find one that fits your special kind of geekery. Get artsy with the In Surreal Time Clock — $19.99 I once bought this math clock for my mathematician father-in-law. This is one super-awesome hanging clock with steampunk and vintage vibes — $44.99 The Light Up Moon Clock can be a nightlight and a time piece — $40 I totally put this same vintage-style turquoise wall clock in my kitchen — $32 The Water Powered Clock is, well, powered by water! Amazon also had a wide variety of water-powered clocks. Speaking of water… here's one whale of a wall clock! — $35.56 Finally, how cool is this retro flip clock!? — $39.96 Whales, owls, water, and lights: What's your favorite clock at home? And how much do you hate having to reset it twice a year? Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

NEXT Giveaways, discounts, and custom glasses and tees galore from Promovizion Show/Hide comments [ 7 ] We have a backwards clock (similar to this: http://www.amazon.ca/CoverYourHair-10-Inch-Backward-Clock/dp/B00EVYAD0S/). The numbers read counter-clockwise, and the hands rotate counter-clockwise too. It took about three weeks to get used to it, but now I have trouble reading a normal clock! The best part is the entertainment value of watching every single visitor to our apartment stare at it, certain that something's wrong but unable to figure out what that something is. Reply OMG, that's hilarious: Reply This! We have a backwards clock and another clock in the same style that runs forwards, but whose numbers are randomized. Whenever someone comes over for the first time, there's that WTF? moment about 3/4 of the way through the evening…. (And now when I look at a clock, I have to take a second to see which way the second hand is moving.) Reply We had an anticlockwise clock in my math class in high school. I always found it way easier to read than a standard clock; I could glance at it and know the time, whereas a standard clock requires I stare at it a moment. I have no idea why. Maybe because I'm left-handed? Reply I've had that turquoise clock on my Amazon wishlist for about a year. And I love those mid-century sunburst clocks! My mom, bless her, thinks they're tacky but still rescued a broken on from a curbside trash heap a couple years ago, my dad fixed it…and then they gave it to me for Christmas. I have no idea if this link will work: https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1/379568_517033734291_1165489033_n.jpg Reply In my last apartment, we had that 'melting' Dali-ish clock. It was really cool and got lots of comments, but it fell off the mantle ALL THE TIME. You brush against the mantle, clock in the floor. You walk by the mantle, clock in the floor. You walk into the room in a hurried fashion, clock in the floor. And when it fell, the battery would fall out and roll away too. So this is my fair warning to you all: velcro it to the mantle, or use one of those Command strip things, or something. Reply We have the Dali clock in our house. I certainly haven't had problems with it falling off, but then again, it's on the edge of the TV cabinet, where we don't really walk past. My husband just CANNOT read it though, I don't know why, I have no issues. We do get lots of comments on it! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
