The Rusch Twins

Materials: Rusch Clock x 2, White Acrylic Paint, Double-sided tape

Description: I just finished a renovation project and realized the walls are so plain. It’s missing the clock! After reading so many good hacks on the Rusch clock, I bought 2 Rusch clocks at $1.99 each, came home and took it apart. And here comes the Rusch twins!

1. Pop the front acrylic (it’s just snapped on)
2. Pull the hands out from the clock
3. Pop the clock from the back (it’s just snapped on too
4. Paint the 2 clocks in white acrylic
5. Wait til the paint is dried
6. Put the second hand on one clock and the hour and minute hands on the other.
7. Insert the AA battery
8. Stick them on the wall with double-sided clock

After an hour, now I have two clocks side by side, one showing the hour and minute and the other just seconds (and what’s the point? I am not sure but it looks cool…)

    I love it. Not because it would be the highest level of aesthetics, but for the idea.

    I really like it. I like abstract clocks and this is very nice. There is a Rusch sitting at home just waiting for me to do something like this. :)

  4. Dosen’t the wall look too blank??

    Very simple and creative! I really love it, very unique. I love having weird things at home so don’t be so shocked if I take your idea and run with it LOL. Greetings from Texas!

    Let’s look at it as a piece of art. The point could be “stop rushing, calm down!” I don’t like the white “boxes” though. Maybe you could really hide them somehow.
    But still: They idea and arrangement is good!

    Love it! Only thing that would make it better is if the motor mechanism could somehow be concealed in the wall.

    I really don’t like it. The rusch clock mechanism is so small that I don’t see how the wall plainness has been solved..unless the wall was ridiculously tiny.

    Or maybe do three of them, one for hour, one for minutes and the last for seconds. But of course make sure they sound as little as possible. :)
