This beautiful walnut clock is made from a solid piece of Walnut which is then fitted with a solid American Made mechanism and brass accents. The three brass “O”s live in the three position. This clock wants to be in your living room, whether your style is vintage modern, mid-century, or soho chic.

features a uniform grid of 110 letters, which it uses to display phrases like “It is half past nine” whenever you press the side-mounted stainless steel button. Other features include a square brushed stainless steel casing in natural or black, the ability to show the calendar day or seconds — with two and three presses of the single button, respectively — and a rubber or leather strap.

If you don’t have a calendar on hand, here’s an easy way to figure out which months have 31 days and which have 30:
- Count the months on your knuckles and the grooves between your knuckles. Leave out your thumb knuckle.
- Every month that lands on a knuckle is 31 days, every month that lands on a groove between knuckles is 30 days (or 28 for February).
Starting with your forefinger’s knuckle:
1st knuckle: Jan (31 days)
Groove: Feb (28 or 30 days)
2nd knuckle: March (31 days)
Groove: April (30 days)
3rd Knuckle: May (31 days)
Groove: June (30 days)
4th Knuckle: July (31 days)
Returning to first knuckle (the forefinger, remember–skip the thumb knuckle)
1st Knuckle: August (31 days)
Groove: September (30 days)
2nd Knuckle: October (31 days)
Groove: November (30 days)
3rd Knuckle: December (31 days)
Instead of moving right to left by starting with your forefinger, you could also start with your pinkie’s knuckle and move left to right. Still works out the same.

Very clever calendar! Saw this on Reddit.
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Save February alone, with twenty-eight days clear,
And twenty-nine in each leap year.

Crazy cool clock to bring to meetings to show everybody how much time and money they are wasting (potentially) by being in that meeting.
I’d wager that meetings ARE necessary to get business done. Not all of them are critical. In my honest opinion, I feel like most of the ones I partake in are needed, and worth the time.

This clock looks really cool! It’s a cylinder that simply rotates and the position of the red line (which doesn’t move) indicates the current time. Brilliantly simple. I really want one.
You can buy the Lexon Around Clock online.
