Thereâ€™s something about clocks in general that have a sense of nostalgia. Sure, I have my iPhone sitting on my desk that can tell time perfectly accurately but Iâ€™ve been wanting a wall clock for my office. Maybe it reminds me of being in school in the 90s before kids had cell phones and weâ€™d all watch the clock, waiting for class to get out for the day.
I have a soft spot for mid-century modern style clocks because they feel more like mini pieces of art than the standard-issue clocks I grew up with.
The most recognizable designs were produced by George Nelson, who ran a design studio in New York City for the Howard Miller Clock Company. While most of these reissues are sadly out of my budget, I stumbled upon the Watch Me Wall Clock. The 8 colored panels remind me of paint chips and I love the simple design. Mine just arrived this week and is now hanging across from my desk â€” I love it!
What about you? Do you have an old school clock hanging in your space or are you all about the digital?
