I’ve just checked back and we have featured this design in its original incarnation on eBay, as well as reissues in oak plus black ash. But we have not flagged up the best version of all, the 1950s George Nelson Sunburst Multi clock by Vitra.

Multi meaning multi-coloured, with this take on the 1950 midcentury classic adding bold splashes of colours for those ‘arms’ as well as on the hands. If you have a room that needs brightening up, get this on your Christmas list!

The Sunburst clock has arms that are made from beech wood and a body made of acrylic lacquered metal. it also has a high-quality quartz time mechanism inside and a size of 47cm diameter.

Not cheap at £252 or $445 (depending on where you are), but this is an iconic design which will serve you well for years to come.
