The Classic 24 Hour Clock (2003) evokes the industrial aesthetic that the Howard Miller Company was known for in the 1950s and ’60s. The company was founded in 1926 as the Herman Miller Clock Company by D.J. De Pree, who had earlier founded the furniture company Herman Miller, Inc.. In 1937, De Pree turned the clock company over to his brother-in-law, Howard Miller, who renamed it. As for the identity of Herman Miller, he was Howard’s father and De Pree’s father-in-law. The Miller companies are not affiliated but stand across the street from one another in Zeeland, Mich. The Classic 24 Hour Clock runs on one AA battery (not included). Made in China.
