Make a statement

While newer gadgets may have caught the fancy of tech-savvy millennials who prefer to wear their timepieces on wrists, nothing can beat the old-world charm of a statement wall clock. Whether it’s an ornate and antique piece or a more modern objet d’art, a wall clock, besides keeping time, has the potential to add a touch of class and drama to any dull space. It can be the centrepiece of your room too.

One for all

If you are someone who likes turning back time, you can go for a wooden oversized analogue timepiece, much like the one you probably saw in your grandfather’s study. Digital clocks, on the other hand, are perfect for modern homes and offices that strive to achieve that minimalist look. These clocks are now available in a host of shapes and sizes—from cube and square designs, to LED display and mobile phone-like curved-edge screens, and more.

Then, there are time zone wall clocks that can be either analogue or digital. As the name suggests, they can tell you what time it is in a different time zone. They come with multiple faces/dials, like the ones you may have spotted at airports. These clocks are a valuable addition to office spaces where assignments and clients come from all parts of the world. If you are a frequent traveller and have friends and family residing in different parts of the world, then having a time zone wall clock can be a lifesaver.
