The Sprocket Wall Clock Tells Time in a Different Way

Telling time is an essential part of an everyday routine, but with the Sprocket Wall Clock it's necessary to do a little decoding first. Designed by Milton Glaser -- the mastermind behind the 'I Heart NY' design -- the Sprocket Wall Clock only features a single arm that displays the minutes and a white rotating circle that focuses on the hour

While in operation, the Sprocket Wall Clock is more of a work of art than an effective means to quickly tell time, but it's this strong trend that we're noticing more and more these days. Clocks are no longer just a utilitarian piece of equipment for knowing what time it is because artists like Glaser are branching out to make designs like the Sprocket Wall Clock a central focus for other, more aesthetically pleasing reasons.
