We’re just going to spell it out for you: The QLOCKTWO timepiece is the best pick for design lovers, hands down. Crafted in Germany by award-winning makers Biegert & Funk, the cool clock turns the hour into words across a glass screen. Look closely at the dots in the corner—those indicate the exact minute. For instance, the clock in the photo above says “It is half past seven” and three corner dots are lit, meaning the time is 7:33. Choose from two sizes ($1,450 for large, $695 for small) in-store at Baker’s Fine Gifts & Accessories (433 Washington St., Columbus, 812-372-9635), or for added variety—more than 20 languages and seven colors—place a special order. Being on time never looked so good.
