Simon says the sassy Howard Miller 645-671 Simon II Desktop Clock is a work of contemporary style. The arched base cradling the clock shows off both brushed and polished aluminum. The shiny-and-textured theme is carried out in the clock body, with brushed aluminum, polished silver stabilizing buttons, and a shiny glass crystal. You can see the contemporary personality of the clock in stylized Roman numerals in the 3, 6, 9, and 12 positions, with tiny black squares to mark the other numbers. The fresh-coat-of-paint white face is a perfect contrasting background for the simple clock hands, including a second hand. This clock's quartz movement runs on one AA battery (not included).
The Howard Miller Story

Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clockmaking by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been uncompromised through three generations.
