Choosing the Best Wall Clock For Your Room. Like it or not, nearly everyone`s lives are ruled by time. We need to know when and where, and no body can get by without a clock. Sure, there are clocks everywhere... on the microwave, the stove, the TV, but they don`t exactly drip style!
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.
All clocks have inner workings that would surprise and amaze you. We usually just take it for granted. There are analog clocks which have a face and hands and battery operated and there are digital clocks which are usually powered by an electric current with number displays.
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.
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.
