Spaceman Table Clock
- 71/2 X 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches

Taking inspiration from cosmonaut space capsules, this table clock pays tribute to the early years of space exploration. The retro styling considers the varied atmospheric forces on space vehicles and recalls that space explorers need to keep in touch with ground control on Earth, using their all-essential antenna. Some fun for the office, the Spaceman table clock will take you to the cosmos.
