Like the woman of understated elegance putting back doubles of bourbon at the East Village dive, Okum Made's O'Clock is the kind of wall art that will provide a much needed "leg up" in your twenty- or thirty-something apartment. The Los Angeles-based design firm's minimalistic time tellers are CNC machined, meaning they utilize a tool guided by the precision of a computer to carve out the bowl area, offering a beautiful contrast between the natural lines of the wood and precise, sculpted edges of the clock. A Quartz mechanism is then seamlessly integrated, making for a truly unobstructive finish. Available in American Walnut, Hard White Maple, Douglas Fir and Cork — and priced between $85 and $97.50 — you'll be sure to find something that fits into the color scheme your girlfriend has been on about.
