This is Maxwell Blake's affordable replica Nelson turbine clock. Designed in the 1940s and 1950s, Nelson's clocks were highly successful both as popular consumer products and icons of high design. One of the most original American designers, Nelson used pure color and bold graphic forms to make a statement still as compelling today as it was half a century ago.
Our wonderful reproduction turbine clock has long, triangular gold-finished hour markers that are aligned consistently by one edge. This "offset" creates a look of radial motion. The core combines wood and a metal silver face plate with a red minute hand and a black teardrop hour hand. The clock keeps time by a high quality Quartz movement (requiring one AA battery; not included).
