I realize that to some, Vespas are synonymous with cruising the countryside on a warm afternoon. You sip from a fine vintage while feeding your new fiancee bits of prosciutto—all before you make love under the sunset.
But to a lanky...ok, kinda fat...6'1" American male like myself, Vespas more often equate with looking like a tool. Luckily for me, I can take the Italian love affair to my desk with the 1946 Vespa Clock. Manufactured from an authentic vintage headlamp, this AA-powered timepiece captures the elegant Vespa style without housing my bulgy, less intended curvature. $178
