From the Manufacturer
Can You Imagine having a clock that appears to be melting off the surface that you placed it on, only to find out that it's an optical illusion? We did. Presenting the magical Melting Clock, a conversation piece that is both art and a precision timepiece. Place the Melting Clock where a clock has never been placed before - at the end of a bookshelf or the end of a desk or any place you can think of. Time is not rigid. Time is fluid and the Melting Clock visually represents the fluidity of time. Is it a clock or is it art? You be the judge.

Luckily, its very easy to remove this plastic piece from the back, if you use a small screwdriver. The only downside to that is that eventually the clock will get dusty.
clever, fun design; inexpensive; relatively accurate at keeping time
It is hard to detect the time because of that design. First, the numbers 2-5 and 7-10 have to be very close together, so if you are more than 7 feet away, it's hard to clearly see where the hands are. An even bigger problem is glare; the plastic bubble over the face creates glare from any light source, regardless of how far away that light source is. (The product shots show the glare problem fairly well.)
The frame does look cheap. For around ten bucks, you can't and shouldn't expect a polished metal frame, but know that the plastic frame with its chrome finish definitely looks like shiny plastic. I dealt with this issue by painting the frame. I went with a surrealistic design to capture a Dali mood (see my first photo), but a solid acrylic color would work well and be easy to do.
The clock doesn't sit securely just anywhere there's a right angle. Without some sort of adhesion, it can easily tip off a narrow edge like a bookshelf or narrow mantle. For it to be set firmly, the two feet that are about 3.5 inches down the back (see my second photo) need to have something to rest against like a deep mantle (as in my first photo) or the side of a cabinet.
Overall, I'm happy with the clock since I have successfully addressed the cons and I appreciate the pros.
It keeps pretty good time
It is a conversation piece, people see it on the mantle and notice it
It's very cheaply made plastic
The battery compartment cracked when putting a battery in
It's loud, crazy loud
If there is no other noise going on, with this clock on my mantle downstairs I can be upstairs past the kitchen into the dining room and still hear the tick-tick-tick of this clock. It doesn't bother me, but if you are easily distracted or find things like a constant dripping of a water faucet to be annoying, you might throw this clock through a window!
Overall, for the price we're happy enough with the clock. If your expectations are it's a cheap, plastic clock that will get peoples attention, you're good to go.
it's cheap, but fine for the price point.
The only reason for 4 stars - I don't like ticking clocks. I guess that's my problem, but when I can hear this from across a giant living room, it bugs me. I wouldn't say it's freakishly loud, or louder than average. Just all cheap ticking clocks are annoying.
