27 Cool Clocks That Will Show You The Time In Creative ways

Salvador Dali gave us “The Persistence of Memory”, which is widely known as “The Melting Watches” and immediately we thought to ourselves, wow, these are some cool clocks! They speak of the relativity of space and time and it is meant to break our notion of a fixed cosmic order.

And today we wan to show you some other representations of cool clocks and the idea of time and we’ll let you decide which you like best.

The clock is one of the oldest human inventions and it has been deciding our lives since immemorable times. And since we need it so much, we made it into jewellery, decorative object and so on. The design is pretty classic as it needs to serve the same need: telling time in a precise and easy to read manner.

However, there are times when we like to play with it, make some art of how a clock should look like and also meditate a little on the notion of time, something we’ve invented and something that invented us at the same time.

So, let’s see 33 different, unique and creative clock designs:
