Tubular Clock Tells Time With Words

by Paul Strauss

Like Art Lebedev’s (vaporware) Verbarius clock, this unique timepiece uses words to describe the current time, rather than using numbers.

Tubular Time Clock

Time is displayed on the Tubular Time Clock in phrases such as “quarter past four” and “five minutes past six” instead of the pedestrian “4:15″ and “6:05.” The clock mounts to any wall, and runs on a single AA battery. It’s quite large, measuring in at 33″ wide and a 4.5″ diameter, so you’ll need some space to hang this sucker.

The Tubular Time Clock can be found at Uncommon Goods for $160.

  1. […] Awesome Tubular Clock! Spread the word! […]

  2. Hmmz… Needs fi-ligatures…

  3. […] The Tubular Time clock uses words to describe the time, rather than numbers, and amazingly does so with just a double-A battery. Maybe a comment on society’s tendency to eliminate the smallest of nuisances or delays, in this case, having to spend a few microseconds figuring out how to vocalize, “It’s 8:55.” [via technabob] […]

    Would be great if it sounds the clock with tubular bells!

  5. Bad Economy says:

    It looks rather hard to read the time, say from across the room.
