Details

Fernando the Fish (1965) is one in the Zoo Timer collection of children’s clocks designed by George Nelson Associates for the Howard Miller Clock Company. Nelson Associates, first launched as a studio by George Nelson in 1949 in New York City, employed some of the most celebrated designers of the time, including Bill Cannan, Lance Wyman, Jerry Serapachello and Roger Zimmerman, the team who worked on the six clocks in the original Zoo Timer collection. Until its closure in the mid-1980s, the company designed a range of products for many clients, including Herman Miller, Inc., which was established in 1923 by Howard Miller’s brother-in-law, D.J. De Pree. A bit of family history: De Pree also founded the Herman Miller Clock Company in 1926 but turned it over in 1937 to Howard, 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. This is an authentic Nelson Clock, produced by Vitra Design Museum. 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.”

Attractive but not as functional as we'd hoped
Very attractive clock, the woodwork and paint look great. Unfortunately, the clock mechanism ticks loudly, which isn't ideal for a bedroom. (If a $12 clock can have a silent mechanism, there's no excuse at this price point!) The bracket to attach the clock to a wall is also a bit finicky on old lath and plaster walls, and we found it difficult to get the clock to lie flat and straight. I wish it had worked out for us, but DWR made the return process easy.
