On one of my birthdays not too long ago, I was given a clock to put up in my studio. It was one of those melted vinyl clocks which the gifter had carefully created himself, and it was one of the best gifts I have ever received. It’s always special to receive something that has been hand-crafted so it’s a one off which no one else has. I mean, I am sure there are other clocks out there created the same way, but I doubt they have the same features and the exact form as the one I have. After all, it is one of a kind. It’s one of those clocks that screams geek when you see it, and since I’m a geek, I know that finding something that delivers that message can sometimes be a hard task if you don’t know where to look.
I have managed to find 4 different clocks that only a geek would hang on their wall. That is not saying you HAVE to be a geek to like them, but if you put them up, you are obviously a geek when it comes to what they represent if you know what I mean. The explanation might seem a little blurry, but if you, for example, are a movie geek (you simply LOVE to watch movies) you would probably love a clock created out of a roll of film, right?
Well, that is exactly what I am talking about! I have found some clocks that are geeky in their own little unique way. First, we have the two Apple clocks which are definitely chic these days now that there is a ton of talk about the future of the world’s most successful company. Then, we of course have the film roll clock that only a true movie geek will be able to house. Last but not least, we have the hard drive clock. It’s the one clock to rule them all! It is made from a real hard drive and with as much geek in it as you could ever become. These 4 clocks represent a whole generation of geeks, and you just have to decide which one represents you the most!
There are a TON more of these clocks created by the Etsy designer PixelThis who probably has the geekiest store on the entire Etsy. If you can’t find a clock that you like there, it’s probably not worth looking for one the first place. The clocks range from $29-$129 so you have the whole pricing spectrum to choose from.
