The Padbury Clock Screensaver

As part of my studio’s relocation from my bedroom to a more centralized location in our home, screensavers are now on my radar. My Mac is just sitting there. Why not have it display something beautiful while I’m away? For the last few months, I was using a screensaver consisting of favorite family photos, which is nice, but I also wanted a simple clock.

It turns out finding a simple clock screensaver for your Mac is not as easy as you would think, but ultimately I found an excellent one: the Padbury Clock. Named after its designer Robert Padbury (a former Apple designer), the Padbury Clock looks precisely how you would think a clock designed by a former Apple designer would look.

If you like the look of the Padbury Clock, there is a similarly themed countdown timer that uses the same simple design to countdown to a specified date. I have also installed that one and will be using it in the future as well.
