An elegant addition to any room.
“The AC02’s low-key sophistication traces its design heritage back to the Bauhaus movement of 1920s Germany. It builds on the acclaimed Punkt. AC01, which was launched in 2011 and has been presented in design exhibitions around the world, including at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Triennale Museum in Milan, and the Tate Modern in London.”
Petter Neby, founder of Punkt.
“Although built around a completely new mechanism, the AC02 remains true to the original design of Punkt.'s very first product. With subtle refinements to the aluminium body and a new deep black anodised finish, this updated model celebrates constancy.”
The weightiness of the AC02’s solid aluminium housing is perfectly counterbalanced by its light simplicity of design.
The process of anodising aluminium results in a coating that is extremely durable and very distinctive, both in terms of how it looks and how it feels.
Instead of covering the clock face with transparent plastic, which inevitably becomes scuffed over time, the AC02 is fitted with glass.
The alarm is switched on and off by rotating the knurled ring that surrounds the clock’s mechanism: easy to find, and easy to use. Turning the alarm on also causes a neat indicator dot to appear on the clock face.
Luminescent hour points, clock hands and alarm time indicator*, supplemented by an LED light ring that is exceptionally simple to turn on: just press the back of the clock. This same action is also used for triggering the Snooze feature.
The AC02 is made for Punkt. by one of Japan’s leading clock manufacturers.
The standard AC02 is monochrome black and white, optionally with the alarm time indicator in a contrasting colour.
Enhances any home or office environment, from the mediæval to the modern.
“19:13” vs. “a quarter past seven”: amid the digital onslaught, an analogue clock face helps keep time human.
*Coloured alarm time indicator hands are not luminescent.
