First off, the timer arrived with the glass insert dislocated from its seat. It would be tricky to reseat it, as you risk breaking the glass. The wood on the timer is not a rich cherry wood, but actually borders on being a deep red. Definitely not something that would match your cherry wood furniture. I think you can tell I was disappointed in this product. However, if you don't mind the color, it's not bad, all in all.

I got this 20-minute timer for a special purpose. I didn't expect it to be as nice as an antique hourglass, and it's not. It is nice for the price, seems to be fairly well made, and is actually pretty accurate. It's what you'd probably expected from a nicely made, modern Chinese manufactured timer.

Virtually everything works right for this hourglass (with one minor caveat, below). It looks very attractive for a very reasonable price, and it is accurate to about 2 minutes, but then, you don't get sand timer if accuracy is your game. I got it to time silent meditation, where one does NOT want the various annoyances of either a mechanical or electrical clock, and you want a bit of antique charm.

The sand was pure white. The nubs at each end, terminating the three pillars, are wood, so there is no artificial look anywhere. I do suggest you store it in its padded box when it is not being used. It is sturdy enough for careful adult hands, but I would not give it a day if it were standing out at a place where kitties could knock it over.

Note that I ordered four of these, timed at 15, 20, 30, and 60 minutes, but I believe the one labelled 15 minutes was actually packed with 20 minutes of sand. Be prepared to check the time on the product you receive and be prepared to send it back immediately if the timing is off. The 15 and 20 minute sizes are the same size glass, but more or less sand. The 30 and 60 minute sizes are the same size, but with more or less sand.

Perfect for studying for the Bar. The visualization of time coordinates and conditions your biorhythms, creating a visceral sense of time, which is exactly what you need if you're internal time clock is aloof and your facing down a horserace exam.

I chose twenty minutes as my measure bc one turn = one study break. So for three months, I lived my life - not according to hours - but hour glass turns. I found comfort knowing that each day I could take up to 72 study breaks. So choose a unit that best suits your needs.

And its sturdy. I wouldn't play rubgy with it, but my cat constantly knocked mine over (onto carpet) until I could finally set it aside after my exam. Constantly. Each time I heard that crash I expected a nasty mess, but lo and behlod - its intact and looks great on the mantle. Fun conversation piece.

Note if this is for a decoration the 15 minute hourglass of this model has IDENTICAL HEIGHT/WIDTH dimensions the difference is either sand content, grain size of sand, or how tight the whole is the sand passes through. 20 minutes...30$ 15Minutes....20$ however the best deal is the extra large and stunning 60 minute for 40$.

What the best and most prestigious (100$+) Hourglasses Available happens to be what all the models of this hourglass can boast.

-Accuracy

-Base is made of Authentic Cherrywood, pretty much the standard for the best hourglass.

-Sand has gone through a process to remain consistent, won't clog the portal, extremely fine (adds to accuracy) and is a nice traditional white color.

- The glass has a reflective shine to it which consistently grows in intensity and luster as it reaches the center of the Hourglass (Note plastic timers are easy to make accurate, but glass requires a process..

There have been quite a few hourglass/sand timers takin up Amazon lately, elaborate colors and designs, no protective wood covering. But if you look for a good 5 minutes scrolling through the hourglass you will see their are still the traditional, elegant decorative available. However sometimes you have to choose between class and accuracy of the Hourglass, not in the case of this and the two.other models of this hourglass, but the most important aspect these offer is affordability.

This manufacturer produces three of these beautiful Hourglasses of the same timer. 60min 20min And 15minutes. They are all less than accurate by no more than 30 second in the 60min 10seconds in the 20 And maybe around 7-8 in the 15. ONLY YOUR 300$ Cherrywood designer hourglass can boast half that accuracy, and yes I own the designer ones.

It's nice in person, yes the finish is a deep cherry wood, but it's not as red as some people claim. It looks really nice, and functions fine.
The rubber grips are a nice touch and blend well with the finish.

I was looking for 20 min Sand Timer and this was the only one I was able to find. It keeps time accurately, has great look and very comfortable to turn.

I purchased this as a gift, and it went over very well. The glass rotates along its vertical axis, so don't let that surprise you. On the surface of the glass, I saw a hairline scratch or two, but nothing you'd see unless you've paid immaculate attention to the glass baubles. The wood feels a little light, but the quality of the overall appearance is more than worth the price. I've had no issues with the sand sticking, but I live in a fairly dry environment.
