A Slice Of History

There are a lot of wall clocks doing the rounds of design stores these days.  With almost every home appliance offering an accurate digital representation of the time all day, every day, I've wondered whether wall clocks are another thing like bookends and coathooks that are nice and all, but functionally obsolete.  But this one captures my imagination... because a big antique grandfather clock is too much for most homes, but the essence is still kind of cool and quaint.  And this clock slice preserves that essence but eliminates the clunk... yes?

Verdict: mice run up the clock, or the mice run down?
