Sonia from Cresskill, NJ– Verified Buyer
i really love this clock. i wish this would come in larger sizes as well. i think the silver makes the room look more modern and sophisticated.
Mei from Austin, TX– Verified Buyer
The clock is exactly as it looks in the pictures but perhaps a tad bigger. It looks great in my kitchen and is easy to put up (light weight). Also pretty quiet too, which is good
Cool design but made of plastic
Jenn from Scottsdale Arizona
The design is unlike anything else I could find for my moden sleek kitchen. However I thought for the price that it was metalpowder coated. It is plastic and very light weight. Got the daz color which is more dark blue than the photo shows. Plan on keeping it.
