The Only Clock is a digital wall/desk LED clock with a hollow round face.
When it comes to design, simplicity is often the best policy. The Only Clock was designed as a modern interpretation of a traditional analog wall clock. According to Dieter Rams, good design is as little design as possible. In the process of making the Only Clock, we were focused on essential design details—not burdening the object with redundancy. We used this philosophy to create an eye-catching and functional piece of art. Back to purity, back to simplicity.

The ONLY Clock design story
I've been using frame technologies in concept designs and my own products for more than 10 years.
Sizing and geometry
The Only Clock's outer diameter measures 300mm. A clock this size can be placed on the shelf or on the wall, in groups or alone, in residential as well as office spaces.
Two control buttons are positioned inside the window, not visible at first glance, but always accessible from the front. These provide a convenient way of interacting with the clock. Located next to the control buttons are the sound holes for the alarm.
Colors and face design
The clock is encased in a matte black-and-white housing with matte light-grey and dark-grey light-dispersing screens. The digits show the current hour. The current minute is shown by the glowing segment on the minute circle. The Only Clock allows you to see the precise time in a familiar, intuitive manner, the same way it's seen on common analog clocks with hands. Due to the contrasting colors, you can easily read the precise time in any lightning conditions, but it won't bother you during the nighttime or impede falling asleep.
The biggest innovation of the Only Clock is that it replicates analog clock mechanisms with digital resources, showing time in completely new way. Each LED in the external circle indicates one minute and lights up for 60 seconds. So naturally, there are 60 LEDs in the internal circle just like there are 60 full minutes in 1 hour.
The frame of the Only Clock displays the hour digits and minute points, crafted in a white or black ABS plastic body.
Day or Night, you will always see the time. Our Clock shows only one minute point and hour digit in an optimal contrast mode. This means that in the dark, our clock will maintain its day light status, however, you will not be woken up or kept awake by a bright light during the night.
The Only Clock has an alarm function. This alarm is for those who have trouble waking up in the morning. You need to physically wake up and go to the clock in order to turn off the alarm.
The small DC port found on the Only Clock's reverse side is a power socket for a 3.5mm Jack. Our Right Angled 90 Degree Jack lets you use the clock on horizontal and vertical surfaces.
Install the clock on your wall with the removable hanger. The mounting hardware is located at the back of the wall clock. The Only Clock was constructed with a place for a special hanger. It has a big keyhole to help find the screw or nail, making hanging the clock easier and keeping it steady and flat.
The standard set contains an AC adapter with a five meter cord. Installing the clock's cords behind your walls is a great way to extend your home or office without cluttering your floors with a tangle of cables.
Our clock is equipped with one AC adapter with interchangeable plugs for the US, UK, EU, and Korea. The clock only works with main electricity, however, a battery should be installed to maintain the time in case of power outages.
