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.
Clocks may cover centuries but always give off visual pleasure. Without clocks life would be chaotic. Most humans wear them on their wrists, keep them next to their bed, and display them in almost every room of the house. Although often, they may never pay much thought to their clocks and their function.
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.
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.
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.
