Not sure how many of you still use clocks for time. With the development of the technology, you can check time anywhere at your home – your microwave, your cable box, your computer, your mobile, the need for a special device to show time seems limited.

Here we handpicked 9 Desk Clocks and Table Clocks, each of them has something special hope you like.
1. Non là ceramic table clocks [source]
Milan-based Studio Klass have created the Non là ceramic table clocks for Diamantini & Domeniconi. “Non là is a ceramic table clock with conical shape, inspired by the famous straw hat – Nón lá in vietnamese – and usually used by Asian people to protect themselves from sun and rain. The form comes also from a functional aspect: when the watch is placed on the table, the base of the cone – on which the quadrant is on – is tilted, thus facilitating the reading time.”
