Here is a list of a few popular clock brands that are well known for their skilled craftsmanship and supreme quality. Howard Miller Company, Bulova, Geochron , Ridgeway Clock Company and Seth Thomas Clocks. The next time you look at any type of clock, take a minute and think of what your life would be like if this instrument did not exist.
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.
Another type of wall clock that is more subtly eye catching is the wood wall clock. A wooden wall clock can be a wonderfully lovely touch to a room that is very much centered on natural materials. Some wooden clocks are quite plain, while others have a face that is created from matching up different woods to create a whole. A wooden clock might have dark bronze or pale silver hands and you will find that this can be quite striking in its own way. Look at the wood in the room where you want to put the clock and take some time to really consider how a wood clock might look in there. Choosing a good wood clock can give you a great focal point for the room or it can be a wonderful supporting detail.
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.
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.
