I like the concept. However, I'd broaden the product line a bit:

+ for retired folks with a foul disposition, I'd have a model where every day is marked as 'Monday'

+ for more positive retired folks, I'd have a model where every day is marked as 'Saturday'

+ for pious folks, I'd have a model where every day is marked as 'Sunday'

When we're empty nesters, no longer attuned to the school schedule, we're going to put one in the livingroom.

Mine's hanging right in front of me here in the home "office." It's quite useful. On any given day, I can estimate what time it is pretty accurately. But, it's not uncommon for me to forget what day it is and, unlike a regular clock, my retiree clock tells me that. Glancing up at it, I see it's approaching half way through Sunday..... plenty of accuracy for my needs and I don't have to stop and wonder, despite knowing it's 11:10 AM exactly, what day it is!

All they need to do now is add a little blinking red light onto it for Saturdays and Sundays as an added precaution & reminder for us retirees to NOT venture out shopping....since all of the cubicle monkeys & little monsters people who are still working & their darling children are rampaging & terrorizing the stores and malls on their 2 day binge shopping for necessities on their days off.
