3 wall clocks

Yes, I'm here again all impressed because someone had an idea to make an object of everyday a little more interesting. In this case, wall clocks, why not?

These 3 clocks are creations of studio chillichilly, from Hong Kong and you can learn more about them by clicking on the images.

In the first one, the numbers are readable only when the minute hand is above them. I wonder if this kind of thing makes subconscious happy, since looking to the other numbers won't give any information, so your head may ignore them when you are trying to check the time.

The second one was inspired by the surrealist paintings (and maybe the tips of the mustache) of Salvador Dali. I bet that person, which everyone always knows, who hates non digital clocks, would have nightmares with this one.

The third one has a little more deepness. The hands are almost the same, the only difference is the color filter that each one has. If you look to the numbers you will see that you can't read very well. The idea is that when the minute hand is above a position, with the color filter for minutes, it makes visible the minutes, as an example, on the image we can see "10" at the position that to hours is "2". The hour hand does the same, but to show hours (of course), at the image it makes visible the number "10" at the position where the minute hand would make visible the number "50". Pretty cool, right?
