Seiko 14-Inch Watch Face Inch Wall Clock

If you’re out of gift ideas for the watch lover in your life, look no further than this Seiko wall clock that mimics the look of their classic diving watch. You’ll be happy to upgrade from a tie to this wall clock for the guy who has everything, and will be pleased with its classic look without being too kitschy for any room in your house. A silver-tone metallic case sits just about two inches from the wall and offers a slim profile on this heritage design, and the LumiBrite hands and dial markers make for a fun detail—though they aren’t super bright without some help from some direct charging light. What’s great about the Seiko wall clock is that it’s light at under four pounds, but is built well. And its silent sweep is actually silent.

Pros

  • Silent

  • Slim profile

Cons

  • Lume isn’t super bright

Braun Classic Analog Wall Clock

The Braun wall clock is a sleek and simple clock from a trusted manufacturing company with a focus on design. This easy-to-read dial layout features contrasting hands for clear legibility and a silent sweeping second hand that gently runs along the clock under semi-tempered glass. Great for any room, this clock measures 15 by 15 by 2.25 inches and runs on just one AA battery. We would put this clock in our living room or kitchen, depending on wall space and reviews mention that they love the size of this wall clock for an average-sized living room.

One person even noted their love for Braun by saying it “fit right in where the old one was hanging. Will buy another one in 20 years if I’m still alive. Maybe set it up in the Amazon auto-reorder on a 20-year interval?” Overall, we love the Braun wall clock for a clean and simple timepiece.

Pros

  • Sleek design

  • Great size

Cons

  • None that we could find

Product image of Umbra Hangtime Wall Clock
Umbra Hangtime Wall Clock

The Umbra Hangtime clock is a cool-looking, minimal, and modern clock that uses wooden pieces to indicate the time. A great functional accent piece, this clock is a great modern and minimalist take on a clock and is made better by the fact that it is battery operated with a sweeping second hand. While white hands may be difficult to see against a white wall, one person combated this issue by simply painting them gold and was quite pleased with their solution. Included in purchase is mounting hardware and a 5-year manufacturer warranty in case of defect. The Umbra hangtime measures at 24 ¼” by 29 ½” and would be a great statement piece in your living room.

Pros

  • Attractive

  • Easy to install

Cons

  • Can be hard to read at a distance

Product image of Umbra 118070-040 Ribbon Modern Clock
Umbra 118070-040 Ribbon Modern Clock

Designed by Michelle Ivankovic for Umbra and with high-quality metal that has been gently bent to form a unique multi-ribbon shape, this wall clock fits in great with any type of home decor. Relax comfortably without the annoying ticking of a regular clock, as this Umbra wall clock is battery operated and silent. The 12-inch diameter is a great size for any room and included mounting hardware makes this modern wall clock easy to install. While photos may lead you to believe otherwise, this wall clock doesn’t bend out like a flower but does sit flat on the wall and it sticks out about 4-inches, so if you’re looking for a slim option, this wouldn’t be the clock for you. Contrasting hands make it easy to read the time but be careful if you’re leaving toward the gold option as it may be harder to read. Another downside of this clock is that it comes with a prominent brand logo that might ruin the aesthetic, but if you’re willing to overlook it it is still a nice looking wall clock.

Pros

  • Easy to mount

  • Cool design

Cons

  • Gold could be hard to read

  • Deep profile
