Plastic? Metal? That’s all seems to be a bit old hat. These days, you need a clock made out of a bit of timber, like this catchily-named Wooden Clock.
It’s not just the wood aspect that catches the eye – check out the glowing numerals, which seem to float on the surface of the wooden block. Indeed, until the numbers illuminate, the Wooden Clock looks exactly like a regular block of wood – albeit a stylish block of wood that would sit neatly on your retro Scandinavian sideboard.
In fact, the only visible functionality is the buttons for setting the time and alarm on the back. Oh yes – and the plug.
You can pick one up for around £100.
