Riki Watanabe Numbers Clock
Winner of the Good Design Award in 2004, this twelve figure "Number Clock" is designed by the pioneer of modern Japanese design, Riki Watanabe. Available in 2 sizes, the clear and large numbers on the clock's face, combined with the slender and distinct lines around the perimeter, make it easy to tell the time and appears gentle on the eye. The minimalist plywood frame with its simple and modern face, makes this clock appear elegant in many different styles of interior and a 'timeless' timepiece for your wall.
The clock's plywood frame is made from a natural material so there will be variation in the grain.
