Regrettably, we’ve been noticing less and less wall clocks these days—now that everything from ovens to computers has digital readouts—but there’s something deeply reassuring about being able to look up at any moment and measure your day to the exact second. Here to bring back that feeling: this sleek replica of a standard-issue 1960s IBM clock from the retronauts at Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.—who’ve done one better by replacing the need to plug it in (the raised outlet might be nearer to extinction than the wall clock itself) with one C battery and a wall mount that’ll hang anywhere you like.

Just above the chalkboard should do.
