The Midnight Clock is a sleek, wooden watch that has a little personalized flair; it hides a miniature book within its gears and inner gadgets. First created by Devin Montgomery as a birthday present, it has since expanded as a Kickstarter project to become manufactured and distributed throughout the world.

The watch takes its inspiration from the hidden passages featured in many children's and fantasy books. The hidden Platform 9 3/4 from Harry Potter, and the magical wardrobe from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, are all cited by Montgomery as lending inspiration to the creation of The Midnight Clock.

The watch is a fully functioning, 24-hour time piece. It has four wooden keys inserted into its sides at each midnight, morning, and afternoon and evening. By removing the keys in a certain order, the watch's face can be removed to reveal a miniature book within.

This magical watch is perfect for reading lovers who long to inject their lives with a little mystery and intrigue. The Midnight Clock is a stunning creation that is sure to delight everyone from bookworms to magic junkies. Stats for Book-Hiding Timepieces Trending: Older & Warm
