I know this is not quite ‘hot off the press’, but it’s still pretty fresh, and I thought you should know…
This iconic 60’s IBM clock…

Is making a comeback!
Do you remember it?
Whether it’s from your time or not, get ready to see a whole lot more of it, because IBM has teamed up with School House Electric Supply Company, and a reproduction, as seen above, of this classic clock is on the market.
Hypebeast digital magazine put it this way…
In true schoolhouse fashion, IBM has released the 1960s Standard Issue Clock featuring a vintage faceplate made to imitate the recognizable standard issue clocks from the mid-20th century. A domed glass lens, steel spun case, and original hands all contribute to this item’s authenticity. The clock also reflects IBM’s history as a timepiece manufacturer…
Did you notice, even the second hand is red just like they used to be!
Let’s take a little look back in time at a few of the vintage clocks…
Notice the red hand?

This one is c. 1970…
And this one is minus its second hand!

But maybe that’s because it’s after 4:00!
And here you see a hanging option of the Standard Issue clock.
How do you feel about this clock being back on the scene? Does it remind you of your school days? Would you still be hanging around at this time?
I do remember this clock well, maybe not the vintage 60s, but definitely the c. 1970s onward. This clock was in every classroom I was ever in! By the time I was working in offices, the clocks had changed their game face, and I never worked in a warehouse, so no connection there. But I have to say, there’s something about this clock and the nostalgia it brings that feels heartwarming, a little bit fun, and I think its timing is just right!
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO STOP BY!
It’s about coming home… and home is a special place that tells your story!
