The QLOCKTWO is a gorgeous modern piece designed by Biegert & Funk that projects the current time with statements  rather than numbers and hands. Some examples of the statements are  ‘it’s ten past ten’ or ‘it’s half past twelve’. Individual minutes are shown as white dots in the corners of the QLOCKTWO and the display can also be adjusted to show a second timer. I have to say this is really a timeless design and it would look so perfect on the wall next to my drafting table.

These handmade clocks are sold by Biegert & Funk and available in English, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, and French versions. Colors include black, cherry cake, frozen blackburry, ice tea, vanilla sugar, light caramel, and lime juice.

The bad news first, the clock retails for a whopping $1565! That is absolutely way out of my price range. The good news is if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can purchase a nifty program which simulates the QLOCKTWO’s functionality for 99 cents over at the App Store.
