Keeps you from being late. We (the royal we) used to have an issue with being late, so we decided to heighten our awareness of the time by putting a clock (or two) in every room. It worked. That said, we always wanted one of these and never knew where to get a good one. The search has ended.
Timebeam is a British company that only manufactures projection clocks for residential and commercial use. They have pursued this nutty goal since 1984 (typical Brits). They make a bunch of different styles, from railway clockfaces (no numbers), to arabic numbered faces, to school clocks with second hands that smoothly move against your wall. They range in price too, from $213 to $2,056. They can be ordered online and shipped from www.timebeam.com. MGR
