Clock wise

The mechanical clock is experiencing somewhat of a reinvention, thanks to Dutch brand KLOKby.

From the Series

KLOKby is a new Dutch clock brand that creates high-quality, mechanical, hand-assembled clocks made with a variety of innovative materials.

The philosophy driving the KLOKby brand is to collaborate with emerging designers to devise clocks operated by precision clockwork but in an open-body format. KLOKby thus is “unique clocks made by many hands”.

Unlike conventional clocks the O’ clock pictured here does not lie flat against a wall. Rather it sits out from the wall at a 90 degree angle. Time can be read from the front, digitally or from the side in analogue form.

All KLOKby’s clocks are completely mechanical, requiring no energy source but still keeping precise time.
