I like clocks. And soon I'll be moving into a new place and would like to get three stylish clocks to put in various locations of my place. I want clocks that aren't exactly run-of-the-mill. Think unusual, conversation-starting clocks such as the Kit-Cat Klock from the 1930s (probably one of the three clocks will be a vintage black or red Kit-Cat Klock). I'm mostly looking for wall clocks and both new and vintage clock recommendations are welcome.
We're planning to present an inscribed clock to a volunteer who's served faithfully for over three decades. In need of some of wordsmithing to save us ... [more inside]
I'm looking for an iPhone app that lets one keep time records (simple in-out-lunch's fine, don't need task/client tracking), but most importantly has a presence on the lock screen. In a perfect world I could get a lunch hour countdown clock too, but I'm not greedy. Any suggestions?
I am looking for a sub $100 way to keep track of the attendance of 20-30 students [more inside]
I'm the office manager for a 50+ person machine shop. Our old manual time clock is about to die and I need to buy a new one. We're thinking of going with fingerprint ID - any pitfalls? Boss would like the clock to ask the employees "Were you injured at work today? Yes or No" and have them answer upon punchout. Do you manage a time clock that you would recommend?
I figured out years ago how to change my Jeep's clock to 24-hour/military time. Recently the battery was disconnected and the clock reverted back to regular time, and I cannot figure out how to switch it back to 24-hour time. Does anyone know how to do this? [more inside]
Often I look at the clock when all the digits are the same, such as, 11:11 or 4:44. Is there a name for this? Do you have your own name for this?
Are there any kits for making a mechanical clock movement? [more inside]
Completely random question: How did people wake up at a certain time before the spread of cheap, accessible clocks? [more inside]
I need a program that will randomly pick a time to sound an alarm without my knowing in advance. It needs to be available for Mac or iPhone -- or failing that, a physical device that I can keep around would work too. [more inside]

sleepfilter: How do I 'reset' my body clock? I'm generally a good sleeper, but I find periodically (and lately), I wake up at the exact same (and weird) time every day. [more inside]
I'm looking for an online resource that will allow me to enter a time (in hours, minutes, seconds) and return a listing of the angles between the hands if that time was displayed on an analog clock. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
My Timex T311T Auto-set clock did not update this past Sunday morning with the time change. I've tried unplugging it, and removing the two AAA backup batteries, and when I give it juice again, it refuses to auto set. I've had this clock for a few years and it has never misbehaved. Any one else experience this with a similar model this weekend? Or am I missing something?

New Toshiba Satellite laptop. Every time I turn it on, the hour on the time is different - this morning it was two hours early; I reset it. Now it says 3:49; it's actually 6:49. Why? WHHHHY??

When I look at an analogue clock the second hand seems to pause before racing off on its 360-degree journey, is there an explanation for this phenomenon?
My system clock (on Win XP) creeps forward every day, ending up 5-10 mins fast. Whats going on? It's normally switched on 24/7, does this have something to do with it?
World clocks. I am trying to put together a clock application and can't work out how to discern the actual time is in each city. The time zone part is easy, but a great many countries (most?) use seasonal time adjustments. I have an online world clock on my screen and a physical one hanging above my head. How do they work?
