designboom recently did an article on timepieces which had some products that showed some unusual and innovative ways of telling the time. it included nooka watches (which i previously did a post on here), and the time table (above) by tokyo based designer ross mcbride.
today on designboom they did another post entitled 'more timepieces by ross mcbride', which showed some more of his unusual and innovative time telling products. above is the sinking clock, and below are my favourite designs of his, the 'normal timepieces' watches and clocks.
i think they're great! available from his website for ¥23,100 (about £130).
