World Clock

  • Sale
  • Regular price $55.00

By creating a unique and playful interaction between the user and the design, the World Clock reinterprets the traditional functionality of the clock. Although the face of the World Clock seems a little ordinary, its cylindrical body allows it to display 24 different time zones via a clever rolling mechanism. Independently working hands allow the clock to be quickly rolled back to any of its 24 time zones, while immediately transitioning back to the local time.

How to use: Let's say someone in New York wants to know the time in London. When it is 5:57 pm in New York, you can see that is 10:57 pm in London if you roll the clock so that London appears on top. (See the number on the clock to read the hour and the position of the minute hand to read the minutes.)

World Clock is in Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection.
