Wall Clock

Wall Clocks

Wall clocks were first invented by a man named Christian Huygens in the Netherlands during 1656. However, as time went on, there were improvements and additional features added to the original design to make sure the clock ran smoothly. This would be features such as; increasing the length of the pendulum, making the swing shorter, adding the minute hand for more accurate time keeping etc. Wall clocks can be a bold statement piece in the home that can add class and sophistication.

How Do I Choose A Wall Clock?

Firstly, you should find a suitable location for the wall clock and consider the size proportions. Bigger clocks usually look nicer in more spacious rooms with limited furniture. Also, you should consider the theme of your room. If the majority of your furniture is made out of wood, then a wooden wall clock would probably be the best fit.
