I first saw one of these clocks in a Paris Habitat five years ago. I liked it so much, I bought it (not cheap) and managed to get it all the way home in my luggage. Mine uses French spellings for the dates. It's real cute. It took awhile to find an English version here, but now Conran has them online as well as off. Made by Karlsson, it's 17"x17", takes a bunch of batteries and makes a lovely flipping sound at noon every day.
