The Linear Clock

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!

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.

If you have a great room or a fireplace that wants a special size, we'll make you one to fit!

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.

Read it at night!

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.

We can add glow dots to almost any of our clocks. And we make our own 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!
