Huygens Tone Wall Clock - White


The Tone clock by Huygens is an undeniably curious time piece in that it is often quite tricky to see what the time actually is. This is due to the hands and divisions being the same colour as the background except that they are both gloss and not matt. Sometimes you will see the time at a glance other times you will have to move in to a position where the light strikes the face at the correct angle. This might sound like the most useless of objects but a clock that makes you seek out the time it tells is a rather nice, though sometimes annoying, reminder of the passage of time itself. Housed in a metal case with an ABS back and containing (an almost superfluous) Japanese mechanism the Tone is a clock that not only looks beautiful but which also occasionally tells the time.
