The Backwards Clock is a clock that ticks backwards, has its numbers backwards and basically does everything backwards. Aside from being a little confusing at first, it makes an excellent timepiece for your wall, and it really does make you do a double take. It's an attractive conversation-starter to have in your home and, once you get your head around it, it will make you wonder why the rest of the world does everything in boring old forwards-time. A super talking point.


  • A backwards clock. What were you expecting?!
  • Shockingly, it is the exact reverse of a traditional wall clock, and ticks backwards.
  • Perfect for kitchen, office, hall, or anywhere people can admire it.
  • Made from chunky plastic.
  • Requires 1 x AA battery (not included).
  • Suitable for all ages capable of telling the time backwards.


  • 38 x 38 x 4 cm.

A real talking point

When you get used to The Backwards Clock it's great, and you will be the only one in the room who can tell the time!

The Backwards Clock arrived very fast, which is normally a good sign! It is excellent though quite mind boggling. I bought it for a present but have decided to keep it for myself and find something else that is so unusual.

love this...........

Bought the The Backwards Clock for my husband's birthday basically just to annoy him, but I guess he will love it (I hope!). As he is left handed, he may get the hang of it quickly, but it's quirky and fun, and will be a talking point when anyone comes to visit. A brilliant idea for the person who says they don't need anything. I love it.

Talking point

The Backwards Clock will be a centrepiece for any lounge or living room. It will certainly get your guests talking about it and trying to work out what time it is!

This is great just takes abit of getting used to. So funny to watch people check the time then have to give it a second glance to work out what the time really is

Great gift!

My sister bought me this Backwards Clock as a gift, since she figured that my left-handed, right-brained self would find it funny. I did, but more than that I was amazed to find that it took me no effort at all to read it backwards! I don't know whether that's to do with handedness at all, but to me it's practically as easy as reading the time on a normal clock. However, friends kept getting confused when they visited, so I ended up hanging it opposite a mirror - now everyone can read it without trouble! The design is classic and the build quality is great - mine survived falling off the wall at one point. It's definitely my favourite clock ever.

The Backwards Clock is a great way to confuse friends. Especially after they've had a few drinks.

This Backwards Clock is very funny. The person I gave it to is a big fan of clocks, they put it straight on the wall and tried to read the time. An excellent present.

Very Poor Product

This Backwards Clock is a very poor product, it keeps stopping and the second hands hardly move.

This is super. Great reactions from other people who take time to learn how to read it. Causes endless laughter and confusion. Every home should have one.

going back in time

This Backwards Clock is a great gift! It is a sturdy clock, well made and will be well received. A great talking point for those who have 'the time' to stop and talk. Using this clock means I'm no longer late for anything. I'm keeping one for myself and giving the other as a present to my nephew who always turns up late for things. I'm glad I've got that 'ticked' off my list.

Backwards clock

Really funny clock, tells the time perfectly, however it does take a little getting used to. Can have a really good laugh with new peeps who haven't quite figured out what's going on with the digits. Highly recommended!

confuses the kids

I purchased on of these some time ago and it is still working well. I work in a school and the kids always make a comment about it. I have had it for so long I have difficulty in telling the time by a boring 'normal' analogue clock

Wow what a product

This is a product that I have always subconsciously thought about since my date of birth all those years ago! I always look at my clock from the reflection in my mirror and calculate the time that way but now this clock has spared me the hassle. :') - I'm so overjoyed.

Great purchase. Bought it for my wife's new office - not saying she's backward though! Excellent product/quality and took but a few monents to get used to it. IWOOT gave superb service - I liked the idea of the delivery company (DPD?) sending a text on mobile giving precise delivery time. Well done

a step forwards with the backwards clock

this item was purchased as a pressie for a work colleague. It went down a storm! The clock itself is quite a good size, and provides a useful (albeit cerebral) feature in any room. It is solidly made but quite light, and is reminiscent of an old station clock. One AA battery does the trick. I'm likely to buy a backwards clock for myself, too!

Coolest gift ever

I love this almost as much as my boyfriend. I was so jealous when he put it up. It takes a while to get used to it but after that you dont't even realise. Wonderful invention.
