Timebeam by Design Limited was a British company founded by Stephen and Anthea Savage to launch a "magic" projection clock.

The Timebeam Classic was a pioneering product designed in 1985 by Stephen Savage to project a working clock picture. The idea came up during a brainstorming session with Charles Coster.

The key to the success of the Timebeam was the "via image" method to project the clock image. This unique and complex design has never been used by competitors who instead used a reflected image that lacked the intensity and clarity of the Timebeam's.

The Classic was imitated by various companies that came and went, but it has been the world leader and pacesetter in clock projection for 30 years.

The same model is exhibited in the National Science Museum.

The clock can be focused by carefully moving the U-shaped chrome-plated metal bar that extends and retracts the main body. The desired position can be adjusted by turning the anchor. The clock can be set using a small plastic knob on the back of the case. It has a range of several metres.

The clock works well and has been a great conversation topic over the years.

There is wear due to normal use, but it is in good overall condition.
