wall clock Functioning in our modern day world requires us to be acutely aware of time.  Clocks were modernized in the 1920s with the advent of the quartz crystal-based clock and then digitized in 1956.  Today, time telling devices exist in many forms, such as alarm clocks, desk clocks, computer clocks, and wrist watches; and the art of timekeeping is also preserved today in several traditional clock styles.  One of these is the wall clock.

A wall clock is not only functional for telling time, but it can also be a decorative accessory or a stylish focal point in a room.  It can be as drab and plain as the clock in fifth-period algebra class, or it can be as elaborate as a hand carved cuckoo clock.  Many clocks are fashioned from rare and expensive woods, manufactured from brass or iron, or even made from unusual objects.  This wide variety of clock styles and sizes will complement virtually any home or office decorating scheme and provide an interesting way to express something about its owner.

Some of the most decorative wall clocks are found outdoors, on the outdoor walls of clock towers, church steeples, and even homes.  London's Big Ben and Munich's Marienplatz clock are two noted outdoor wall clock examples.
