Some people are numbers people and others are word people. Not me, I’m gr8 at b0th. The Word Clock is designed for the word people of the world because it tells the time in words. This classic design by Hans Muller and Hans van Dongen has a pair of adjacent rolls both contained within a single clear acrylic tube. The red mark tells you the line that you need to read to tell the current time. The “minutes” roll spells out the times in five minute increments while the right hand roll is the hours, spelled out. The clock measures 24″ x 4″.
