Turntable Clocks

Submitted by on September 3, 2009 – 9:37 am 3 Comments

Etsy user Pixelthis has created some great clocks out of recycled turntables, vinyl records and magnetic tape.

This clock below was made with a retired Fischer turntable and rocks a Doobie Bothers album: Minute by Minute (what else?). Sweet.

This clock is made with a Steelman record player and an old 45 which you can swap out for another record. It even includes a leather case.

This bad boy uses a TRI-O-SPEED turntable and also sports a replaceable 45.

This one was created using a recycled Realistic Clarinette 15 record player with a replaceable 45 vinyl record. Check out the title of the record: “Musical Multiplication Tables”. Love it.

This clock is sort of a mix of new and old music recording technology. This clock was made from an old Scotch magnetic tape reel and a used DVD that was headed for the trash heap.

Absolutely stunning.

The clocks are only $89, which is pretty cheap for a handmade work like this. What a perfect gift for an audiophile (or for me – hint, hint!).

Pixelthis also makes clocks out of bike parts and all sorts of other things. Check them out here.
