The Present is finally here
So… It arrived. It took a while, but it’s here.
And whether it was worth the wait or not, it’s here now, and it’s as awesome as I had hoped.
Unboxing was quite nice, you can see that the packaging is nice and minimal.
The clock is wrapped in nice tissue paper and bubble wrap.
Once you get the clock out and drop a battery in it, it spends about 2 minutes calibrating and setting time, which is quite bad ass I have to say.
Once set, it’s good to go. Put the clock on a wall and watch it go. The reason I backed The Present in the first place, was to see a visual representation of a year.
I’m definitely one of those people that finds themselves thinking “It’s already the middle of the month”, “It’s already the summer solstice?” etc.
Seeing a year fully represented in such beautiful detail, I hope, will help me keep the year in perspective as time flies past.
