The idea behind the Wyzer wall clock by Reinhard Dienes was to make the wall a part of the clock. Using large plastic hands and a small clock mechanism, the Wyzer hides everything behind the colorful hands of the clock, so you’ve got a clock that’s literally all hands and no face. The lightweight plastic allows the hands to be large yet stable.
The Wyzer feels less like a clock and more like a sculpture piece that tells time. Breaking away from the traditional approach which would require a clock-face and markings, the Wyzer leaves it to one’s imagination. The interesting bit is its ability to still tell the time pretty effectively, and look absolutely remarkable and decorative while doing so!
