zzof. Clock. October 09th , 2017.
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.
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 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.
Large Wall Clocks - Stylish, Trendy, Practical. Large wall clocks are one of the more recent and dramatic decorating trends. They`re "in" in a big way - and for a host of very good reasons. For starters, the clocks are stylish, trendy, decorative, practical and widely available at prices from ridiculously expensive to embarrassingly cheap. Anyone planning a major or minor do-over to change the look and character of any room in the home, and that includes a patio or porch, should give serious consideration to a large wall clock as an important element in the face lift.
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.
