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 Hands of Time - Wall Clocks. The first time pieces started approximately 6,000 years ago for religious rituals. These devises were often candles and lamps. Farmers used sections of time for planting, growing and harvesting. It was not necessary to know the exact time.
Are you interested in a nautical theme, or do you prefer a clock that is much more military in nature? If so, it is time for you to take a look at metal clocks. Metal clocks might be made of brushed aluminum for a bright and modern look or they might be made out of polished brass for something that is much more traditional. These clocks are usually round and the edges are usually fairly thick. This can go a long way towards helping your room develop the look that it wants.
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.
