Buying Guide

Fans of interesting and different designs will be pleased to hear that Japanese wall clocks are widely available to purchase for your home. There are various styles available, but if you're intrigued by Japanese culture and want to feature a part of it in your home, here are some of the designs you can consider.

Long wooden clock

A very traditional and long wooden clock is a classic vintage style if you're looking for something as authentic as possible. Positioned vertically along your wall, there are no numbers and hands – the time is told by a balance movement and mechanisms within the long frame and body of the clock. The wood is often aged and worn to reflect its age, and you could pay a fair price at auction for such an item.

Simple bamboo clock

A more minimal design such as the simple bamboo wall clock is ideal for modern homes. The clock face is made from a light brown bamboo material, while the outer frame is a glossy black or brown. On some designs, you may find other feature pieces, such as a boat shape along the top. There are rarely any numbers fixed to the clock face – normally you will only find dots or marks in place of some or all of the numbers.

Japanese number clock

With a background design in a solid color or Japanese flag style, a Japanese number clock is a great addition to your study or kitchen. Rather than Western numbers on the clock, you'll find the Japanese numbers, making it instantly recognisable that this clock style has been taken from Asia. Although there are various colors available for these clocks, there are most commonly white to represent peace and harmony.

Modern lines

Another modern style of clock which can be seen is a wall clock with modern lines in various directions. For example, there are straight pieces made either from wood or chrome which face horizontally, and similar pieces which are positioned vertically. This combination creates a base onto which a clock face can be made. The lines may also be curved outwards to create a somewhat 3D effect. A small solid square in the center of the crossed lines may form the middle of the clock and the home of the clock hands.

Origami style wall clock

As the name suggests, you can find origami clocks in many different styles. The most common are birds, where the clock hands are on the body or feathers of the bird, and flowers, where the petals provide the beautiful feature pieces and the center is a place for the clock hands and mechanisms. Choosing opposite colors is a common choice made by designers of origami clocks. You will often find contrasting patterns and colors between the petals or different parts of the clock. Popular colors are blue, purple, green, pink, and the contrast of black and white can be seen across many designs of Japanese wall clocks.
