zzof. Clock. October 20th , 2017.
The next instrument was Sundials from Egypt which marked the daily progress of the suns movement across the sky. This method was known to be accurate and useful. You can still purchase clocks that look like sundials today. These were made of brass and only the rich could afford them. Briton transformed the brass dials with painted ones. These were inexpensive and clocks started being used for decoration as well as keeping time.
Style. I make no apologies for being conservative... but I have yet to come across a room where a plain, conservative wall clock would be out of place, provided its color didn`t clash with the room. If in doubt, simply stick to old fashioned round face with plain digits. Then again if you want to be adventurous here is the chance - do a quick search online and you will find hundreds of clocks to suit any theme from nautical to horror movie memorabilia.
We are all familiar with the indoor wall-clock as decorative and useful addition to virtual any room in our homes and offices. What we may not realize is that clocks make great outdoor decorative pieces too. The minimum requirement for a worthy clock is that it is weather proof, or at least water resistant. Water resistant clocks are better suited to dryer climates, or on a sheltered patio. If you live in a climate like the Northwestern United states, or the UK you will want to have a fully water proof weather resistant outdoor-clock. They are not hard to find.
The tick. No, I`m not being silly here. Does it tick? how loud? An amazing number of people have complained to me that they had to get rid of their new clock because the tick drove them mad! Have a careful listen, and actually tip the clock onto its side, the way it will hang on the wall. It sounds trivial but the weight of the hands and mechanism can make the tick a lot more pronounced when side loaded.
For the den, the styles tend to be a little less serious and more playful. Sports, beer, cards, pool and gambling themes prevail for the younger and more adventurous set. Those with more sedate tastes will probably want to select something a little less brassy. Hunting and fishing themes or eye-catching large wall clocks with a weather or nautical theme are popular. Weather protected large wall clocks are also available for your porch or patio in a wide range of prices and styles.
