I recently had a birthday last week and a friend who knows I love unusual clocks surprised me with this gem. This Hourglass Clock is a clock like no other. The clock was designed by David Dear, this modern clock displays the time as the top and bottom rotate independently of each other. The passing seconds are displayed by the spinning circle on the top surface of the clock. This clock is 6.5" high by 4.75" in diameter and is battery operated. I assume it is a quartz movement, but boy I would hate to figure out how to replace it. It took me a while to learn how to set it, but once I figured it out I warmed right up to it and it sets on my desk next to my computer monitor.
