Tom Daley helps with the countdown

Tom Daley helps with the countdown

Count down to the biggest sporting event in the World’s calendar from the comfort of your couch with the Wind Up Olympic Countdown Clock. A perfect scale replica of the pointy-edged monolith currently ticking down in Trafalgar Square, this funky piece of memorabilia is a great way to show your support for the games. Just remember to wind it, or it’ll stop!

Every ten days the Countdown Clock will break the mounting tension with a helpful soundbite from British Olympic hopeful, Tom Daley. Whether it'll be a simple "Not long now..." or perhaps "Tom smell Gold!", we just don't know. Press the button on the base and he'll also speak the time out loud.

Boasting a digital clock, but traditional clockwork mechanism, this pint-sized curio will quietly tick off the days until the start of the 2012 Olympics. But what happens when the clock hits zero? Well, that would be giving the game away...

Customer Reviews

As I already have the real Tom Daley in my house (he says the time whenever I poke him and gets a cookie if he does it in a particularly funny voice), I won't be needing this product. I can see how this might be useful to anyone who doesn't have the joy of holding Mr. Daley prisoner though!

I am seriously disappointed in this product, as soon as it reached 500 days 7 hours and six minutes it froze. Will not be purchasing another.

Will this have any use as a normal after the Olympics?
Chris, Northampton - 1st April 2011
Just ordered mine! WOW to think I can have Tom Daley in my own room!
Vincent Willcox, Ipswich - 1st April 2011
The fact that its called a wind up and it costs 2012 kinda gives it away lol. Again nice try.

Does it run out of power after 24 hours like the real one?
