Apparently taking a cue from wristwatches that are impossible to read , clock makers are increasingly devising timepieces for the wall and table alike whose most notable feature is their indecipherability .

But Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara has taken a less sadistic approach in designing his non-numeric clock, creating 84 drawings that correspond to particular times, Luxist says. Well, at least it's appears less sadistic with its whimsical figures; it could indeed prove even more maddening than other unreadable clocks in the long run, depending on how well one remembers what each illustration indicates. And that would undoubtedly add considerable insult to the injury of its $250 price tag.
