Desk Clocks

The Best Desk Clocks

They say time and tide wait for no one. I am not much of a seafarer, so I can't vouch for the tide part of the proverb, but I've been late for enough meetings to know that time does not mess around.  Rather than fighting the inevitable march of time, embrace it with some of our favorite desktop clocks. 

Bulova B6844 Flair Clock 

With a brushed aluminum case and face, this Bulova desk clock will add an industrial touch to your desktop. The luminous hands and on demand lighted dial are nice features for those night owls out there. There is also a built in alarm to let you know when it is time to take that next break. Buy Here

Never worry about setting your clock again.
