Extraordinary Clocks and Watches.
I love weird and unusual (mechanical or electronic) clocks and watches. Here are some more:
Cathode Ray Tube clock. It’s gorgeous.
An old badass-looking electromechanical binary register display from a Minuteman I missile guidance computer turned into a binary clock. Duck and cover!
The nixie tube watch. Apparently you get in trouble if you wear it at the airport.
I love this seven-segment bookshelf clock.
LED clock with individual digits. This is really cool, but it’s a shame each digit is tethered to a cable. With inexpensive 433 MHz digital transmitter/reciever modules and microcontrollers, you could make it completely wireless pretty easily.http://suck.uk.com/product.php?rangeID=79&showBar=1#
Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t put in a plug for the extraordinary Clock of the Long Now.
