eBay watch: 1970s space age Atomium desk clock


I'm not sure the image above does this justice, so check out the full listing of this 1970s space age Atomium desk clock to see some close-up shots. It's an impressive thing.

With a case made of black and transparent perspex and a clock mechanism built into the base, the clock's hands are a mix of three-dimensional rings and chrome-plated balls. So how do you tell the time? Simple - you look down and see the time based on that structure and base. There's also a 'seconds' hand that (as you might guess) constantly moves, creating an object that's both practical and attention-grabbing.

It still works perfectly and is powered by a single AA battery. Unsurprisingly, there's already interest in this, but the bidding is still at just £21. A real bargain.
