Uses one AA battery (included). Made in Poland.

George Nelson

Possessing one of the most inventive minds of the 20th century, George Nelson was the rare person who can envision what isn’t there yet. Nelson felt that designers must be “aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society and thus cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.”

Pretty good but somewhat lacking.
It’s a great looking clock designed by one of the best female designers of the era (Lucia DeRespinis, a Nelson fellow) but the quality of this clock is somewhat lacking. The hand set is very thin and there is a large amount of play in them. If the clock isnt completely level, the hands rub leaving circular marks on clock. Otherwise the structure of the clock itself is beautifully done. The brass and walnut really pop with the white and orange hands.

Also I recommend using either a large screw and molle or a high test anchor for this clock because it’s heavy....even heavier than my Kite clock which is a tank.
