LP0003 Awara Hoon – Hand painted Bollywood vinyl LP record clock

An original, vintage Bollywood vinyl LP record converted into a beautiful hand painted clock that tells the time with a song!

This revolutionary product combines three separate offerings into one very unique design: hand painted art, vintage Bollywood memorabilia and actual function.

Indian cinema is set to complete 100 years of its existence next year – 2013 will be the centennial year for Bollywood. As a dedication to 100 years of Indian cinema, Indian Hippy has singled out original, vintage Bollywood vinyl LP records featuring the best Hindi songs of all time, and transformed them into colourful hand painted clocks.

Back in the days, these Bollywood vinyl LP records were bestsellers and contained some of the greatest Bollywood songs ever. Reborn in a fresh avatar as hand painted clocks, these vintage Bollywood LP records have been given a new lease of life.

The Bollywood vinyl LP records that these clocks have been made from are either 33 ½ or 45 RPM 12” Long Play vinyls dating back to the 1960s/1970s. Vintage Bollywood vinyl LP records surviving today have very little play value, primarily because of scratches and dust that accumulate over several decades they have been around for. Hence, if played on a gramophone or a turntable, they tend to skip. Vintage LP records also pose a risk to the environment as the vinyl material they are made of is non-biodegradable. Thousands of broken vinyl records find their way into landfills each year and end up clogging and harming the environment. By converting these redundant Bollywood vinyl LP records into not just beautiful works of art, but actual functional clocks that serve a purpose, Indian Hippy aims to promote the message of ‘recycle and reuse’ with a Bollywood twist!

This unique product transforms the completely outdated and redundant Bollywood vinyl LP record into a work of art that serves an excellent function. Our vintage Bollywood vinyl LP records are certified damage-free and are thoroughly cleaned before being painted and converted into clocks.

These unique vinyl LP record clocks feature hand painted portraits of Bollywood stars along with a line from a chartbusting track in the record. Fitted with a thoroughly tested clock machine encased in a plastic body compartment at the back, this beautiful hand painted clock is ready for hanging on your wall.

This Bollywood vinyl LP record clock works with a standard AA pencil battery and comes complete with a one year replacement guarantee. Also provided with every Bollywood vinyl LP record clock is the original jacket of the record to validate its authenticity. The jacket features artwork on the front cover and a song list on its back detailing information about singers, music composers, etc.

A celebration of Bollywood music and an ode to the best Hindi songs of all time, these vinyl LP record clocks will not just tell you the time, but put a song in your heart!

Please note:  The vinyl material of the LP record is UV sensitive and susceptible to heat damage. Exposure to direct sunlight will cause the LP record to warp / contort. The clock must be installed on a wall away from direct sunlight and heat. Also, since the hands of the clock are exposed, please do not place the clock flat on its face or touch the hands. Doing so may bend the hands and impair the natural motion of the clock.
