The world has seen too many uninspiring chronographs come to be, but the Side-Beside Clock offers up the hour in a rather unusual way. Instead of its backing fitting flatly against the surface of the wall, the object's indented side matches the mural quite snugly.

In rooms with long plans especially, it's not always a given that you'll be seated in on the couch or at a desk with a good perspective of a wall clock -- perhaps your view is more sidelong. In this scenario, the mounting of this particular type of timekeeper makes the analogue indicator more easily read.

If its peculiar shape and placement aren't enough to have it literally stand out, the Side-Beside Clock by Ludovic Roth and Alexandre Dubreuil comes in bright hues of solid blue, green, red, black and white. Stats for Obliquely Mounted Timepieces Trending: Older & Chilly
