Single Hand Clock

Product & Packaging Design

Regular two or three handed clocks feature a seamlessly gliding hours’ pointer, smoothly transitioning from one number to the next. Single-handed clocks are designed to take advantage of this fluid motion, employing the very same hours’ mechanism of a two or three handed clock, omitting the minutes’ and the seconds’ pointers, utilising only an extended version of the hours’ pointer to display the time.

To facilitate the reading of the time, lines and numerals are placed at the edges of the clock’s face, indicating 15, 30, and 45 minutes past the preceding hour’s number, supported by smaller lines set at every 5 minutes for a more accurate reading.
