Art Lebedev's Verbarius Clock Tells Time Pretentiously

Illustration for article titled Art Lebedevs Verbarius Clock Tells Time Pretentiously

Art Lebedev's apparently as bored of the Optimus keyboard as we are, which is why they're releasing so many weird products lately. Their latest, a clock, is a timepiece that shows you the time in "writing".


Yes, instead of digits or a bunch of hands, it says "midnight", or "two sixteen a.m.", or whatever time it happens to be. Cool, yes, but worth $158 (or $183 after September 1)? Probably not.

I have a watch from Arnette that does this already. It's called the Arnette rectangle. It can flip between digital, analogue-like, and words. It's a nicely designed watch too. Even has a built in magic 8-ball when you hold down the light button.

It's in wristwatch size already. I wear it everyday.
