Dream of Vespa adventures from your cubicle

Clock shaped like original Vespa headlight.

Napa Style

Okay, so maybe it's not as all-out of an office-roadster tribute as the Mini-Desk , but this Vespa desk clock, a favorite of ThisNext readers, is still pretty cool--and probably a lot more reasonable. The Vespa clock's vintage styling and streamlined design, modeled off the headlight of an original 1946 Vespa scooter, would make a lovely addition to the most chic of office spaces.

But therein lies the problem. It's certainly aesthetically pleasing, and quite classy, and that's kind of why I'd be hesitant to get one. It'd clash horribly with my current desk decor of a scruffy cactus, striped coffee mug, and half-eaten pack of Mentos.
