If you were a Chicagoan looking for a job in the 1940s, the war provided many, as defense factories popped up all over the city seemingly overnight. While toiling away, you would have looked up at a clock just like this to see when it was time for lunch. This Chicago Factory Wall Clock was built to mimic the large timepieces that adorned the walls of factories in the Windy City in the ’40s. The Chicago Factory Wall Clock features a bi-level dial, visible brass gears, a steel case, solid brass knobs, and a hinged front, which opens outward. It’s a clock with more character than any you’d find at your local big box store.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
