Most all the the clocks, regardless of style and size have simple movements powered by a singe 2A battery, seldom need setting, and run for what seems to be forever on a single battery. Pendulums and other accessories somewhat shorten the clock`s battery life.
The first antique wall clocks were called lanterns. They were made out of brass, very heavy and were hung on walls. The concept of personal clocks was introduced in the 17th century.
Weather protected large wall clocks allow you to decorate a backyard patio, deck or even a garage. These indoor/outdoor timepieces are excellent for families that do a lot of entertaining and barbecuing outside. These clocks may come with separate smaller dials for temperature and relative humidity. If it is an atomic clock it will keep precise time and adjusts itself several times a day using radio signals from the U.S. Atomic Clock in Boulder, CO. It will adjust for Daylight Savings Time automatically.
A well chosen clock should complement your space, and will be a pleasure to look at as well as being just functional. Here are a few key pointers. Is it big enough? If you need to put your glasses on to read the time, maybe you should look for big bold characters. It can still be elegant, just look for a large wall clock with black on white numbers. Also look for solid easy to see hands that you can see across the room.
How to Choose a Wall Clock. When people go shopping to choose a clock for their home, most people immediately think about functionality, and another additional factor at the time of purchase, which is the price. However, that is mostly a wrong approach regarding wall clocks. Wall clocks are more a piece of decoration than a useful clock, especially antique ones.
