i'm actually really fond of this clock in walnut. i'm thinking it should be the next accessory for the study. its iconicity is second to its whimsical nature. a fun, long-term investment.
A work of art that knows what time it is...
Well, in most offices, the clock gets quite a bit of attention so shouldn't it be a work of art? The original Nelson Ball Clock, replicated, mimicked and duplicated a million times over and Nelson himself doesn't even know who designed the genius thing. Kudos to DWR for including Nelson's anecdotal story in the item's description.
Ubiquitous in 60's mod decors, the Nelson Ball Clock has definitely made a comeback. I think it would make a really cute kitchen clock.
