McIntosh Mantle Clock

"It's a trap!" Okay, maybe it's not really a trap, but the classic design of the McIntosh Mantle Clock ($1,500) will surely be enough to trick your guests into thinking it's a piece of high-end audio equipment — and it has the price to prove it. This novelty timepiece is made with the same-sized faceplate and blue-lighted meters as the company's stereo amplifiers, with hands covering 12 hour and 60 minute arcs. At this price, maybe the trick's on you.
