PVC curved pipe clock | Steve Diskin | Tik-Tek Engineering, Kirsch Hamilton and Associates, Inc. | Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States | 1980

Here is a PVC curved pipe desk clock by Steve Diskin of Tik-Tek Engineering for Kirsch Hamilton and Associates from 1980.  The clock measures 8” in height and 5” across.  The clock runs on a single C size battery.  The clock is definitely reminiscent of some Italian designs (like the Cronotime) that have the face set on a curved, tubular base and modern split-circle faces like these wall clocks by Krups in red, green, and blue.  Still, this clock is has the unique and characteristic styling of Diskin/Tik-Tek (like the Nova). Perhaps the frequency of split-circles in the designs of the 1970s and 80s reflect a societal obsession with pills.

eBay item 151483350242 sold November 29, 2014   at 7:12PM  (United States).  Four bidders placed 6 bids on the clock.  The clock sold for $430.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

just for the record, this clock is missing its second hand, a bright red disc that covers the center post of the clock movement. too bad! sd
