Computer Keyboard Clocks: Time to Press Enter

Computer Keyboard Clocks: Time to Press Enter
I love these fun and functional clocks modeled to look like giant computer keys. Each clock measures in at about 10-inches square, making it about 175 times larger than a regular computer key.

Digital Clock Needs 48 Analog Hands to Tells Time
It took me a second to figure out what was going on when I first got a look at this table full of analog clocks. But once I stood back from my screen, I realized that none of the clocks have the correct time and the whole thing is a macro timepiece that tells the time using 24 individual clocks.

Diesel Watch has No Face, Still Manages to Tell Time
At first glance at this dramatic designer watch from Diesel, you might ask yourself where the heck the time is hiding.
