The offer of a clock to review from Vita Interiors came at just the right time. With our new kitchen /dining room complete,
I recently pointed out to my husband how useful it would be to have a clock on the wall that I could actually see from my almost, permanent position on the sofa.
I selected the George Nelson Style Wheel wall clock from Vita Interiors impressive range of modern and reproduction clocks. You can take a look for yourself HERE It is described on the website as high quality reproduction in the style of the original design . I was drawn to its classic but also modern style and thought it would fit perfectly with our decor.
It arrived quickly, and was very well packaged. On unpacking the clock, I have to admit to being slightly bemused by the yellow tape ! Especially as several of the pieces of tape were sticking up and coming loose from the clock.
Maybe it was for protection ? was there something underneath it ? I couldn't remember if the photo of the clock on the website had the same "tape" on it. I checked back to the website and the photograph resembled more the original design George Nelson wheel clock which had actual brass inserts to represent the numbers of the clock.

I appreciate the clock I was sent is "in the style of" and that the originals now sell for many hundreds of pounds but I am afraid I do think the yellow tape let down what is otherwise a beautifully made, first quality clock that I am proud to display on my wall.
There was only one thing to do. Remove the tape. You can still tell the time and to be honest, I think the clock looks much better for it.
Even looks more like a steering wheel now.
