LEFF Amsterdam is an innovative clock and watch brand, selling a variety of ingenious timepieces.
The LEFF Tube Table Clock index has an innovative yet simple design. The clock is fabricated from stainless steel and created within a mould to make its classic tubular shape. The extrusion method entails forcing the metal through a mould, giving it a unique shape which can be clearly seen on the clock face. The clock has a circular face and is 5cm in diameter and 8cm in length, so it's small enough to fit in the tightest corners. The clock features quartz movement and requires one LR44 battery.
