The Cadence 4-bit binary wall clock

‘Subtle enough to disguise your inner geek, but stylish enough to hang proudly on your wall’

ollowing the successful launch of Cadence Watch Company’s 4-bit line of watches, they have just announced the release of the 4-Bit Wall Clock.

The subtle 4-bit binary embellishments bring geeks a classy and sophisticated timepiece to adorn the walls of their home and/or office.

Like the 4-Bit and 4-Bit Chrono Watches, the numbers on the dial are in 4-bit binary code – the digital encoding method of 1’s and 0’s that computers run on. At first glance, the binary symbols appear simply as hash marks, but for those whose lives revolve around computers, they are instantly recognisable icons of the digital age.

Features and functions of the 4-Bit Wall Clock include:

• 13 ¼ diameter clock face with shatter-resistant polycarbonate safety crystal
• Sleek and sophisticated high-impact, black plastic textured case with hanger
• Battery operated quartz movement
• Runs on one AA alkaline battery, which comes included
• Proudly manufactured in the USA

One of the little joys of geekhood is wearing something that is totally geeky but only noticed by other geeks. "Normal" people just don't get it and it’s probably just as well as geeks get their stuff snatched by jocks every day of the week.

The 4-bit binary watch was designed by John Flear. His designs often incorporate high-tech motifs into classical objects. These objects then take on a signature retro-futuristic feel.

This watch is classy enough to wear on any occasion, while geeky enough to make a good conversation starter.
