The Diamond Markers Clock designed by George Nelson displays a striking combination between abstract form and material. The clock features a detached diamond-shaped hour hand circling around an orange disk with a rectangular shaped minute hand. The diamond hour markers appear to float off the edge of the clock face courtesy of slim metal joining elements. Such carefully designed details make the clock a timeless piece and stunning decorative object.

In 1947, the American designer George Nelson was commissioned to create a collection of clocks. Nelson analysed how people used clocks and concluded that they read the time by discerning the relative position of the hands, which made the use of numbers unnecessary.

These ideas provided the basis for the first collection of 14 timepieces, consisting of a completely new style of wall clocks and compact table clocks, which were launched on the market in 1949. Although the models all shared one common feature – the absence of numbers – the diversity of their shapes, colours, materials and designs could hardly have been greater.
