Can anyone think of a nice modern wall clock?

Hi

I'm looking for a wall clock that looks modern but isn't a binary clock or anything to complex like that, preferably battery operated. If you know of any, please reply! Thanks

There are millions of different clocks out there, so it's kind of tough to suggest one, but here's an option.

Depends on the price there are lots of options.

Ikea has inexpensive options, if you search google for modern clock

You might want to check out museum of modern art online store at:
moma.org

Or search at places that sells modern furniture

I've got this clock - got it as a birthday present and I really like it. There is a magnet inside that moves round like an hour hand and the red ball follows the magnet above the clock face if that makes any sense. Runs off a single AA battery and looks pretty funky.

Sunfast that clock is awesome! I love timepieces of all styles, mostly watches, but that's very cool. You don't have the brand or something do you?

I've had my eye on one of these hideously outrageous beauties for a while:
