Sebastian Wrong is the creative mind behind the 'Font' analog clock that highlights typography with a flip mechanism that displays 12 different fonts. The fonts are used to highlight different elements of the time and date with the antiquated repetitive hum of the slabs clicking as they move chronologically to display the time.

With the rise of digital and smartwatches, Wrong's 'Font' clock is a nod to retro times when analog was the more popular design. The tabletop device features a vintage styling that focuses on the intricacy behind typography -- another antiquated art form. All the fonts used are drastically different from one another to create a contrasting balance.

Each element of the clock flips manually to display the date and time, and at midnight when all five panels simultaneously change the clock makes a loud booming noise.
