Clock Hands Stay Put, Numbers Move Instead

by Paul Strauss

Unlike a normal clock, this funky modern timepiece keeps its hands stationary, letting the numbers on its dial rotate around the hands to tell the time. A simple gear-drive mechanism moves the outer ring around the clock mechanism.

The desk clock gets it’s name, “Pisa” from it’s eye-catching leaning tower design. And if you really feel like going all out with the 12th-century Italy theme, the dial can be reversed to show roman numerals instead of digits.

So far I’ve only been able to find this clock from Korea’s Earlyadopter Mall (priced at 15,800 KRW, about $17 USD) but post a comment if you manage to find them somewhere in North America.

    The designer could have done a little more research…

    Clocks/watches with roman numerals always write “4” as IIII not IV. This is so it doesn’t get confused with VI (not as important for a “normal” clock/watch but very important for this one where IV and VI are not stationary).

    I am thoroughly offended and disgusted. I will think of this clock as I throw up into the toilet.

  4. Minimalist Pisa Clock – The Modern Handless Desk Clock with Animated Dial…

    Very much reminding us of the previously featured Monolithic Tower Clock, which also offers a ‘handless’ means of time telling, this Pisa Clock – so called, rather obviously, on account of its leaning design and which is available from the same…
