While sun dials might count only the shining hours, what most people need is a clock that is accurate and attractive. When you can find large decorative wall clocks for sale, there is a good chance that you can find the timepiece for which you have been searching. Specialty clocks or unusual ones can enhance your décor while creating a conversation piece for your home, office or place of business.
Analog Time Keepers
In our current age, with a prevalence of digital clocks, analog clock faces are becoming almost historical. Yet amazingly decorative effects can be achieved using unusual or even traditional clock faces that display the well-known twelve-hour positions on the clock face. Roman numerals or other unusual hour designations can add to the mystique of a retro timekeeper.
A classic added effect to an analog clock is displaying a section of the gears. In a world where solid-state electronics limits the need for gears and cogs, there is something nostalgic about a clock face that displays the inner workings that once caused clocks to tick. Roman numerals lend a classic effect since they have long been the numbers of preference for grandfather clocks. A clock that incorporates military time with a traditional display can be both helpful and an interesting anomaly.
Background and Casing
The color and shape of the clock face is an added element in the effect the clock has on a room. Add to this the material and shape of the casing, and that of the hands, along with the number style and you can quickly create a unique clock that is not only a source of the accurate time but also a conversation piece. You can change an ordinary room into something extraordinary simply through your selection of a clock. Or you can have a clock that unobtrusively displays the time without dominating the room – and that can have merit, too. Large or small, dominant or retiring, a clock is a wonderful mechanism that has been a major part of the industrial revolution and the electronic age as well. Here are some ideas for your home or office, each unique in its own way and offering choices to enhance or to create understated accuracy. As you look through these large decorative wall clocks for sale you are sure to find something to suit your spaces – large or small.
