Retro wall clock with Roman numerals

Retro wall clock with Roman numerals

This large retro wall clock measures just under 40”. The visually appealing contrast between the white face and the classy dark numerals in a slightly distressed finish makes it particularly easy to tell the time, even from a far distance.

Designer Advice:

The choice of Roman numerals alone will be an immediate giveaway of your vintage inspiration. They also work wonders to add a nostalgic retro touch to shabby chic or farmhouse interiors, where these numerals are also popular.

Mid century modern retro wall clock

Mercer41

This show-stopping clock comes in a silver, copper, or gold finish. While the overall design reaches 15”, the actual clock face is only 6.1”, so we only recommend it if you’ll be looking at it from a fairly close distance.

Designer Advice:

If your interiors draw inspiration from the immortal trends from the 50s and 60s, a starburst design is the most logical and immediately recognizable choice when it comes to mid-century modern wall clocks. You can reinforce this style even further by opting for a warm finish, but only if it matches your actual palette, of course.

Rectangular retro wall clock

Rectangular retro wall clock

This 28” x 12” clock moves away from the obvious circular shape and even from symmetrical designs altogether thanks to small details like the door handle on the right. The Roman numerals and French words add to its nostalgic appeal.

Designer Advice:

A retro wall clock with a frame-like case can help you add some depth to your wall and decor. While it could run the risk of making a small corner feel a bit cramped, it’ll work divinely in larger settings, especially when paired up with thinner wall decor items.

Skeleton retro wall clock

Skeleton retro wall clock

This 23.5” x 31.5” clock gets rid of the background and face altogether, replacing them with an intricate texture of Roman numerals and decorative lines. While it’s not the most immediate clock to tell the time, it’s undoubtedly stylish.

Designer Advice:

Don’t forget that the background of a skeleton clock will be… your actual wall! So, be sure to choose a model in a hue that would contrast against it: that way, the hands and numerals will stand out against their background, making it easier for you to read it from a distance.

Vintage retro wall clock

August Grove®

Available in off-white, black, brown or gray, this small 10” retro clock adds a skeleton twist to a more traditional round design. Both the frame and the digits showcase some distressed elements that enhance its vintage feel.

Designer Advice:

If opting for the white finish, this type of retro wall clock can be the perfect addition to shabby chic rooms. After all, this decor style already comes with an intrinsic vintage feel, and a clock with a worn-out look is ideal to reinforce its charming lived-in vibes.
