Tip of the hat to @Beatgrrrl on Twitter for spotting the return of this 1960s IBM Standard Issue Clock.

Probably less of a cult item to us Brits than US readers, it's still a great utilitarian item and one-time staple of offices, warehouses and schools during the mid-20th century.

This remade clock is hand assembled in our Portland, Oregon, with a spun steel case and domed glass lens, while the dial features an original graphic treatment, circa 1947.

The clock is operated by a Quartz movement with a red, continuous sweep second hand. Sold with one C battery and hanging hardware, it's exclusive to Schoolhouse and sells for $235.
