“Walk into the club like “Whaddup I got a big clock!””
Clocks are amazing gadgets that double up as décor in any room. There are many types of clocks these days; classic cuckoo clocks, abstract art clocks, modern clocks, digital clocks, alarm clocks, and many more. The right clock can complement your room space to make it more comfortable and stylish at the same time. In some parts of Asia, clocks can be considered as superstitious if given as gifts. Even here in Hong Kong, a clock may not be a suitable gift, but definitely necessary in every home. Here are some clocks you have to look out for.
Most classic types of clocks are made from wood. It’s no surprise that wood is still the most used material for making clocks. When we think of wood clocks, we think of the old-school wooden cuckoo clocks and large standing clocks. But the more modern wooden clocks are typically smaller and thinner. As for shape, wooden clocks mostly come in circular shapes but occasionally come in squares.
With more modern themes, some wooden clocks are simply blocks of wood with the clock features in the middle or skewed to one side. This creates an abstract concept and a more futuristic look to your living space. These clocks go along perfectly with mirrors and wall art.
More delicate but classy, glass clocks are the next best option if you enjoy a hint of luxury. Not recommended for those with little children, glass provides a clear view of the font and numbers on the clock’s numerical interface. Simple yet sophisticated, add any glass clock to your home and you can be sure to upgrade your room’s look. Glass clocks are perfect for areas such as meeting rooms in offices and hotel rooms.
These days, the evolution of the modern clock has taken on various shapes. In particular, the wall clock has undergone the biggest change. Today, the modern wall clock is so simple that you just have to add the clock interface onto the wall. For example, a simple modern wall clock is where the numbers of the clock (made of wood or paper) are mounted onto the wall. These open-style clocks fill in space where there is no wall décor. Be sure to get a colour and font that suits your wall colour and motif.
Digital clocks lead the way in electronic clock technology. Perfect for your bedside morning alarm clock, digital clocks usually come with alarm and date features. Some digital clocks are solar powered. This enables you to charge it during the day for use at night. Simply place it at an area with sunlight and you’re good to go. There are even digital clocks that have a radio function. The radio activates an alarm in the morning so you instantly get updates on the latest news in the world. How cool is that?
Ultimately, our clock preference says a lot about our personality. Check out the clock types above to get a huge selection to purchase.
