There's something brilliantly literal about this timepiece from Doug's Word Clocks. Imagine saying, "Oi, clock, tell us the time!" And it does! In words!
Handmade by Canberra man Doug Jackson from local materials, it's available through Down That Little Lane, or you can buy different styles directly from Doug himself. If you're feeling more in the D.I.Y. frame of mind, he also sells clock kits and lists complete instructions for free on his site.
