The wall clocks to choose from in the world is large. Even more so if you count the non wall clocks. There are retro wall clocks, antique wall clocks, modern wall clocks and novelty wall clocks. Wall clocks can be made of plastic or wood, or even metal. Plastic clocks are not damaged easy, and wood clocks can have a stylish unique antique looks. Metal clocks can have a striking appearance, and can modernize any home. They can be made of iron, copper and steel as well as many others.

Retro wall clocks are made in styles that had been used during different times and had been the "modern" of the time. Novelty wall clocks however had been made for a specific theme. Cat clocks and sports themes are popular. From Disney wall clocks to Barbie wall clocks the choices are limitless.

Grandfather clocks are the most well known types of antique clocks. The grandmother clock is the shorter version of the grandfather clock. These clocks feature a pendulum. The pendulum clock is well known for its sound. "Tick, Tock."

There are many ways a clock can tell time. One way is the analog version. This is the clock with the hands on it. The number of hands a clock has is usually two but can have an third hand to count the seconds along with the hour and minutes hand.

The other way a clock can tell time is the digital version. This one displays the time on a screen in a preset format. The common format is hours/minutes/seconds. The seconds is optional.

How a clock is powered matters as it changes how often a clock must be checked. Mechanical power is one of these types. Mechanical clocks come in hand cranked with a spring and weight powered that drops slowly. Mechanical clocks work anywhere as long as they are reset often. Electric powered clocks are the second type. These come in the choices of battery powered and cored powered. Battery powered can go anywhere, but the battery must be changed and you must keep spares. Outlets have only limits to where they can be available.
