As long as it’s not pointing to mortal peril…

Harry Potter fans will, of course, know that the Weasley’s humble home is filled with a cluttered assortment of fascinating trinkets and gizmos from both the Muggle and wizarding world alike.

Aside from introducing us to the wonders of Floo powder and the annoyance of garden gnomes, one of the most memorable objects in the Burrow is Mrs. Weasley’s magical clock.

Now thanks to this technical “wizard,” the clock exists in real life!

In HP canon, the clock has nine golden hands, one for each of the Weasley family members, and tracks where they are between “home,” “school,” “work,” “traveling,” “lost,” “hospital,” “prison,” and “mortal peril.”

During the Second Wizarding War, all the hands were constantly pointed at “mortal peril.” Yikes!

While it’s not truly much of a clock, per se, one Muggle has finally cracked the “magic” behind the handy device and now uses it to track his family’s whereabouts.
