      Since "retiring" I don't pay as much attention to clocks as I once, out of necessity, did. These are some very cool designs. I particularly like the Dali homage.

      I like the Salvador Dali clock. There's a similar one in my office, but the number four is 'IIII' (instead of 'IV'), which I've always found hysterical for some reason.
