New Timepieces for Lawyers Track Time in Billable Blocks

BillablehourswatchThe Billable Hour Company sells watches and clocks that divide the hour into six-minute increments--the same way lawyers bill their time. The Billable Hourô timepieces could be neat gifts for many special occasions in a lawyer's life, or a 'thank you' and holiday gifts. The company's two watch styles and two desk clock models are available at

Founders Mark and Lisa Solomon, both practicing lawyers, said, "The idea came up during a conversation about work," said Mark. "Billing is a huge preoccupation of lawyers; it's a topic of conversation everywhere they gather," he explained. "Since lawyers often bill in tenths of an hour, at one point I said there should be special watches for lawyers that were marked every 6 minutes."

Lisa suggested the $49.95 watches and desk clocks are perfect gifts for many special occasions, like winning a big case or closing a big deal, graduating from law school, passing the bar exam or being admitted to the bar, making partner, and joining or opening a new firm.

"They're also a particularly good choice for other professionals who want to thank lawyers for referring business to them," she continued, "because the recipient will think of the gift-giver every time he looks at his watch, which will keep the giver top of the mind when it's time to make another referral."

The company offers two watch styles--a black leather band or a gold-tone band--and two desk clock models. The timepieces are sold through the company's website:
