A New Way of Telling the Time:
The Word Clock

Screenshot of Word ClockThe Word Clock is the latest addition to our range of free online clocks. It combines timeanddate.com's impeccable precision with a brand-new funky design.

Forget numbers — the Word Clock tells the time in plain English: “It is twenty to twelve”. It features a matrix of letters which are selectively highlighted to deliver the correct local time in an ever-shifting string of words.

Sounds confusing? It's surprisingly easy and practical. And we think it looks pretty cool too! That's why we have also thrown in German, French and Norwegian versions for good measure.

Check out the new Word Clock now!
