Hans Hilfiker's Swiss Railway Clock

Railway engineer Hans Hilfiker's 1940s classic designed for the Swiss Railway Stations it has become the train station standard with over 3000 clocks in Europe keeping precision time for the trains to follow. The straightforward black and white face with a red second hand is easy to read from a distance.
The rest of these designer clocks have their own stories, like the mid-century lolly pop design for Herman Miller designed by George Nelson or Kikkerland's Sprocket Clock designed by Milton Glaser.
