Banker’s Alarm Clockfrom Design Within Reach$125Buy Now from Design Within Reach
One of Arne Jacobsen’s last designs, the Banker’s Clock (1971) was created for the Danish National Bank, also designed by Jacobsen, located in central Copenhagen. In this tabletop alarm clock size, the clock face has the same graphic that Jacobsen designed for the bank. Its clean face has a 12-square line marking each hour position; the square closest to the clock’s center is filled starting at one o’clock, the next at two and so on, creating a subtle spiral pattern. The alarm is a pleasant sounding bell – very old school – and snooze is activated with a light tap on the top of the clock. To see what time it is during the night, tap the top for a touch-sensor LED light that automatically shuts off. The Banker’s Clock features a precision quartz movement powered by two AA batteries (not included). This is an authentic Arne Jacobsen clock manufactured by Rosendahl Timepieces. Made in China.
