Our kitchen clock stopped working and the wife fetched from storage the clock I purchased from Ikea almost a decade ago when I was assigned temporarily in Finland. It was a pine-wood clock under the Doldis model name. It was smaller than the clock it replaced but thankfully it was still working and usable after all these years of storage.

The clock only has the hour and minute hands. The lack of the minute hands makes it not as useful when cooking. There was something else though that made me a butt of some jokes from my wife as I didn’t catch it when I bought the clock. Can you see it? 😉

Ikea Doldis Clock

We will keep using the clock. I paid good money for it and we can live with its “uniqueness”. 😀

[UPDATE] I am aware that using more than 3 Roman numerals is acceptable albeit non-standard. The clock doesn’t use that form for number 9 though. 🙂
