The Pisa clock is inspired after the Italian leaning tower, which is pretty apparent from the slanted backing to the clock. While keeping with the Italian design, this clock includes swappable numbers in the traditional and roman numeral style. Like most of the unique and designer clocks we see, the Pisa is next to impossible to tell the time, at least at first. That is because the arms are painted directly onto the backing, so therefore the numbers have to rotate around the arms to maintain the time.
Should these modern designers be putting their touch on practical devices like clocks? How does the saying go, "If it's not broken, don't fix it"? I guess it's okay as long as I can still get my standard, classroom-style ticking wall-clock that does not require any effort to operate and read.
