Waals World Watch

Telling time in areas around the world can be a lot easier than counting out the hours on your fingers. Charlotte van der Waals created a twelve-sided clock engraved with the names of 24 cities, each representing the different global zones. Set it so your desired destination is on top and you'll know the local time. Available for purchase from Show.
