Please Stand By…
From Nextime, Dutch design company which has made a name for itself by designing a whole slew of cool and funky clocks from the modern and mundane to the down right wacky, the contemporary styled Test Page Glass Wall Clock lies somewhere right in between. This glass faced wall clock was designed by Fritz Fink as a humorous take on the retro, nostalgic old test pattern shown on televisions when the networks went off the air. Gosh, it’s hard to believe there was a time when TV wasn’t running 24 hours a day.
With a large, multicolored, 17″ glass face and rectangular metal hands the Test Page Glass Wall Clock is easy to read and looks great in any room but this cool retro clock is perfect for a family room, home office or media room. Words on the bottom proclaim “One Moment Please” as a constant yet friendly reminder that time is passing.
Personally I love the bold colors and iconic throwback media graphics but on a more practical side, Nextime uses a very good quality movement, although for those that need a second hand you should note that this clock does not have one. Prices vary from store to store and although when it was first released it went for $80.00 you can pick the Test Page Glass Wall Clock up for about $56.22 at the online retailer ivgStores.
