This Saturday eve is turn-back-the-clocks time again. Not only can you get an extra hour of sleep, but when you open your blissfully well-rested eyes you can gaze at some of these stylie time keepers.
Go industrial with this Umbra Gyro wall clock (1, Mi Casa, 242 Carlton, 416-929-1913, $31.50), try Roman numeral Smurfy blue chic (2, Studio Brillantine, 1082 1/2 Queen West, 416-536-6521, $179) or opt for mid-century mod with a classic George Nelson ball clock (3, Studio Brillantine, $420).
Swiss Army ain't just about knives no more. Get this camping-friendly pocket-size plastic-covered ticker for your forays into the wilds (4, Studio Brillantine, $64).
Want to make your bedside table look oh so Jetsons? How about this sleek eggish Umbra Omega alarm clock (5, XIT Designs, 1142 Queen East, 416-778-0823, $30)? Do digital with this old-school small and lightweight number (6, Studio Brillantine, $64) or stake out James Bondesque subterfuge with this tiny real-time train clock (7, Ma Zone, 473A Church, 416-934-9400, $110).
Retro your metro with this vintage 1970s Howard Miller wall clock (8, Machine Age Modern, 1000 Queen East, 416-461-3588, $200) or record your own wake-up message -- i.e., "Get the #!@ up you lazy slut!" -- into a seemingly innocent small white alarm clock/radio (9, Caban, 262 Queen West, 416-596-0386, and others, $79).
Gussy up your girl room by keeping time in sparkly purple (10, Artzy Phartzy, 418 Queen West, 416-504-0475, $23.99) or fulfill your 1960s space age fantasies with this orange crush reproduction (11, Ma Zone, $30).
Remind yourself of the interminable hours of public school with this scholastic-looking Infinity wall clock (12, Artzy Phartzy, $65) or pretend you're in some strange Fisher Price village with this cutesy number (13, Ma Zone, $58).
And last, but not least, recall your sexual conquests of the early 70s with this vintage Sharp digital flicker (14, Machine Age Modern, $150). Yeah, baby.
