Quirky wall clocks that look like a piece you’d find in a museum of modern art

Quirky wall clocks that look like a piece you’d find in a museum of modern art

Contemporary? Futuristic? Unashamedly pretentious? Some unique wall clocks look more like art pieces than purely functional items.

The trick is usually to choose a design that breaks free from the traditional round frame with numbers. Instead, consider different shapes or even asymmetrical lines. And why not lose the numbers altogether?

Awesome clocks in a mid century modern starburst shape

Awesome clocks in a mid century modern starburst shape

Everly Quinn

Starburst designs were a staple in the trends of the 50s and 60s, and especially for clocks. If you’re looking to turn yours into a noticeable focal element, this attention-grabbing shape is certainly a great idea.

It’s obviously perfect for mid-century modern rooms, but you could even choose a model that incorporates elements from a different style, like this art deco twist.

Buying Guide

Unusual wall clocks make watching time go by less boring! If you've stared at regular clocks for more than a few seconds, then you know all too well that they make you dread how slow time passes. Fortunately, that's no longer the case as creative minds have developed unusual wall clocks! Before you commit your money, check out our buying guide first as it'll help you choose the one product that suits your needs and personal style best!

  • Available Space. Regardless of how interesting and cool the clock that you've bought is, you won't have a use for it if you don't have space to hang or display it in your home. If you'll be buying a clock for a wall that already has lots of objects hung in it, then your best option would be a smaller wall clock. For sparsely ornamented walls, the most suitable are larger wall clocks.
  • Placement. Make sure that the clock's placement will be visible as you need to locate and reach for it by the time you change the batteries.
  • Functionality. There are clocks that just remain silent, while others ring once every hour. If you'll be needing silence in the room where the clock will be placed in, then you will love a version that's silent or muted. If you are in the market for a clock that's capable of waking you up, then a version that has an alarm would be the ideal option for you.

Unusual wall clocks can take any shape under the sun, but the shape of the one that you'll purchase will have an impact on a room's aesthetics. The most common shapes of unusual wall clocks are hexagonal, rectangular, square, and circular. Clocks with round faces best suit rooms that have leather furnishings. Rectangular models, on the other hand, fit areas that have lots of straight lines and right angles.

If you opt for a digital display, you will have a clock that's easy to read. With digital displays, however, you are required to check the backlight as it needs to be bright enough for the time to be visible. If the digital clock will be in a dark room, the best option would be a bright LED instead of a gray one. On the other hand, dial or analog wall clocks are the best for elegant rooms as they require special décor.
