Linear Clocks

A calm and elegant way to look at time.

Unique concept

During the day, the pointer (there's only one) slowly moves to the right to show you the time. At midnight, it starts moving back to the left, taking six hours to return home to 6 AM - and as it does this, glow-in-the-dark dots at each night-time hour let you tell the time in the dark!

We run a Google search every day. Nobody else in the world is making clocks like this!

A space in every room

It turns out, by happy accident, that these clocks fit perfectly over doors and windows. And we have clever angle-hangers that make it ridiculously easy to get them perfectly level.

Our 40" clocks fit well over a single door/window; we also make 80" clocks for a double door, and 60" clocks that work well over your fireplace or as a centerpiece on a wall.

Beautiful inside and out

The circuitry, motor, and battery live in this cool living-hinge enclosure. Recharge it every 9-12 months by plugging in to USB overnight.  Accurate to 8 sec/year. Best of all: it self-corrects for Daylight Savings Time! (And you can disable this if DST goes away.)

In the dark, the numbers vanish but the glow-dots light up! Open one eye, and the dots clearly say whether it's time to get up or not. Above, it's about 1:20 AM. And we make our own glow paint - it lasts all night.

Handcrafted in Asheville, NC

Each clock is unique. We use local or imported hardwoods, upcycled where possible. Our custom electronic brains are professionally manufactured.  Our team gets the details right!

The Essentials Linear clock

These clocks embody our unique design idea, the Linear Clock, at a more accessible price.  They use the same mechanism, the same software and many of the same engineering concepts as our high-end clocks, but without exotic hardwoods or live-edge features.

For these, we've standardized on a few styles of engineered wood,  and adopted a simple pointer design. They come in 3-foot and 5-foot lengths.

Best, they all have glow-in-the-dark dots, so you can tell the time at night!  They are perfect for your bedroom.  Our fancier exotic-wood clocks deserve a spot in your living or dining room, where your friends and guests can enjoy them.  These are more pragmatic, functional, and ...well, essential.

And they are beautiful.
