The Present: Annual Clock That Tells Time in Seasons

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” - Ferris Bueller

‘The Present’ is the most interesting clock in the world, and it’s helping us regain an appreciation for the sanctity of time in the constantly moving world we find ourselves living in.

The annual clock, limited to just 2,000 units, invites a meditative long view of time that helps you be more present, more often.

This 11-inch diameter, 2.25″ thick stainless steel timepiece magically ‘sets itself’ to the exact day you insert two AA batteries.

Designer Scott Thrift created ‘The Present’, the pixel perfect clock face featuring 16 million vibrant colors, in a way that you’ll never see move until there’s a significant transition in time.

The custom microprocessor moves the hand by the slimmest of margins every 6.08 days or 142 hours. 8760 hours in a year breaks the annual clock down to approximately 62 movements.

The Present should run with the included battery for no less than 4 years, with the potential to run for over 12 years.
