zzof. Clock. October 20th , 2017.
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.
The first thing you should decide when buying a wall clock is what size to get. The larger wall clocks can be anywhere from the two to four feet range. This obviously requires some open wall space. A clock this size will be quite stunning and draw the eye but be careful that there is not too much going on in the room otherwise you could get a cluttered result. If you have the space, a bright or colorful clock that carefully mixes well with the rooms theme can really draw some attention and become a conversation piece.
Some types of clocks, but not limited to are: Antique, Wall, Contemporary, Nautical, Atomic, Decorative, Traditional, Mantel, Grandfather, Cuckoo, Kitchen, Alarm, and others. There are two types of movement. They are mechanical and quartz battery operated. Some mechanical clocks produce a chiming sound. Clocks are also powered by solar energy, winding mechanism, and batteries.
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.
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.
