A Classic Clock Made Modern

There are numerous wooden clocks out there – this one and this one come to mind as particularly interesting examples, not so much this one – but none tickles my fancy so much as this one that caught my eye as I was browsing Etsy the other day.

Could you, WOOD you, love it?

Created by Cameron MacLean, craftsman and owner of Offcutstudio, this maple wood clock has taken the traditional classic alarm clock and pared it down to its basic elements. The blank face and unexpected material turn this basic clock into something much more interesting and engaging. I don’t know about you, but I’d be tempted to pick this wooden clock up just to see if it was heavy or light, smooth or rough.

What say you: Too simple? Or just right? Would it fit into your decor and personal style?

    Haha-This clock reminds me the watch my parents thought would be perfect for a 12-year-old me (I still have it). I remember being traumatized by not knowing if it is 4:30 or 5:30 and to this day buy every clock with full set of numbers :)

    What is it about the 4-5 time slot on clocks without numbers? Because I can tell when it’s seven or eight, but trying to decide whether it’s four or five always leaves me vexed.
