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.
The first thing to decide when buying a wall clock is the size you wish to have. The larger wall clocks have different sizes, but generally range from as little as 10 and up to 40 inches or more. This obviously requires having space on the walls.
Innovative designs for large wall clocks are plentiful with many different shapes, styles and materials that were unavailable several years ago. Shopping could not be easier online and the selection is far greater than that found in stores and malls that have space limitations. If you enjoy gardening, there are many clocks with floral themes such as sunflowers that will please you. Families that love boating will appreciate nautical themes such as sailboats on sparkling water. The kitchen is the perfect place for an apple or a pizza clock. Animal lovers will adore pet clocks with a paw print or a specific breed like a Basset Hound.
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.
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.
