There are may reasons why you might be looking for a new, easy to read wall clock. Maybe you are moving into a new house and need to decorate the empty walls. Maybe you dislike wearing a wrist watch or carrying your cell phone everywhere to know what time it is. Or maybe you simply want a different clock to the one you already have.
In any case, there are many wonderful clocks out there for you to choose from. While you can still get basic clocks like you might have seen in school rooms or at the office, you also have the option of buying a really cool themed clock (a great idea for kids rooms) or a really wacky design that challenges everyone who looks at it.
Some of the weirdest but most eye catching clock designs come from a company called Karlsson. The company is based in the Netherlands, and specialises in very minimalist, and also contemporary artistic wall clocks. Karlsson clocks are hand crafted and of top quality, making them ideal not only as gifts but also as centre pieces in modern house. If you want to be different, a Karlsson Clock is the way to go. Probably the weirdest – or should I say creepiest – clock they make is called the life clock: instead of a 12 hour dial with minute and second hands it has a face divided into 100 years. You set it running and yep, it slowly ticks away, the year hand moving along ever so slowly…Lets just say this might not make everyone feel comfortable, sitting at the dining table and watching their life tick away!
There are also practical reasons why to buy a new large wall clock. If your eyesight is not as good as it used to be, a larger clock with easy read numerals can make life a lot easier. While you can still buy wall clocks in department stores or specialist clock dealers, online stores are able to offer very competitive deals. And don’t forget Amazon and Ebay – you might find a real bargain.
