atla-081208-pbk01.jpgIf you have friends and family who live in other countries or in other time zones, figuring out when to call them can be a challenge. ("Hmmm...so, if it's twelve noon in Los Angeles, it must be 9 pm in Paris...or is it 8 pm?"). The easiest method, of course, is to have a couple of different clocks set to the appropriate time zones so you can tell at a glance if you'll be catching them at breakfast or interrupting the best part of their REM sleep. For a variation on that method, try these clocks from Pottery Barn...

The various shapes make it easy to distinguish at a glance between the clock set to follow the movements of your family in NY or that of your friend attending the Venice Film Festival. Their chalkboard surfaces keep their numbers handy too. Our only issue is that there are not clocks in the shape of more countries and states -- Africa, the US and Italy are the only shapes available -- so for right now Italy will have to stand in for all of Europe, Africa for the rest of the world and the US for everyone "local."
