Naoki Terada of Terada Design has created Carved, a new clock with the numbers carved out. Although the product doesn’t appear to be stocked yet, Lemnos, who specializes in Japanese designer clocks, will be the sole distributor. If this doesn’t float your boat, Lemnos is stock full of designer clocks from the typographically-inspired to the, I-don’t-really-need-to-know-the-time-I-just-want-something-cool-on-my-wall clock.

Inspired by ancient sun dials, Kazuo Kawasaki created Hola. It even has an iPhone app.
