9 Unique Wall Clocks

Spring has arrived and summer is on the horizon (finally!),  so what better time than to start looking at updating your interiors.

Gone are the heavy throws and darker colours – and out comes the lighter, brighter interior themes to represent the longer, sunnier days.

One of the most affordable ways of updating a room is not to change the bigger items, but to update a room's accessories and accent colours – we're talking cushions, lamps, ornaments, throws, artwork and… clocks!

So to celebrate the warmer weather that is (finally) on the way, I've picked out nine of the best looking unique wall clocks – on the High Street and online…

Time doesn't stand still – and neither should you!

1. Oh so lovely origami

How original is this Karlsson Origami Wall Clock in Pink?

It costs £38 from Red Candy and would suit a more feminine themed room – or even a teen’s bedroom.

Its unusual shape, with origami style texture, will create an eye-catching feature on any wall and, with a soft pink ceramic face and two brown hands, this quirky clock can easily blend into the background. It's subtle but oh-so trendy.

It's made of ceramic and measures 27cm diameter (with a depth of 6cm) and requires 1 AA battery.

2. Cement clock

Encased in a simple brushed silver effect case with matching silver hands and a cement effect face, Cox and Cox's cement statement wall clock would make an ideal addition to a home office or living room.

It oozes masculinity and would suit either an industrial, minimalist or uber-contemporary theme.

The cement clock costs £80, is made from steel and measures 40cm diameter and 6cm depth and requires 1 AA battery.

3. Elements Cuckoo Wall Clock House 

I'm a big fan of cuckoo clocks. When we were kids, my mum and dad would take us skiing in France or Switzerland and one holiday we picked up a gorgeous cuckoo clock from Switzerland.

It used to cuckoo on the hour and play a lovely little tune, so I had to feature some sort of cuckoo clock in this cool clocks list!

Featuring an analogue clock face in black, the battery operated Elements cuckoo clock from Dunelm feature a simple white house shape with a small white bird mechanism.

Measuring 11cm wide, 20cm long and 27cm high, it costs a very affordable £30 and requires 1 AA battery.

4. Geometric Swirl Rose Gold Clock

The geometric swirl rose gold clock from Graham & Brown is definitely one of those conversation starters.

I'm loving its swirling design – and of course the fact that it's the on-trend metallic of the moment (rose-gold) makes  this clock even more appealing.

It would look super cool against a dark background in a dining room to create a moody atmosphere, or even in a themed bedroom that features a variety of textures and shapes.

The Geometric Swirl Rose Gold clock costs £75 and measures 63cm wide by 63cm high, with a 5cm depth.

5. Wine O'Clock

Oooohh is it wine o'clock yet? This tongue-in-cheek ‘WineO'Clock' design is from House of Fraser and costs £75. The good news is, if you're not a wine fan they've accounted for this by offering Gin O'Clock and Prosecco O'Clock options too.
What makes this super really unique is that the frame contains individual (and original) vintage cards sourced from a 1930s spelling game.

The cards have then been double mounted with cream and black, into a stylish black wood box frame – and a quartz clock mechanism has been inserted into the frame creating an original stylish clock.

The finishing touch is the addition of the black hands to complement the frame. If it's not one for you, it would make a great gift for a wine (or gin/prosecco fan!)

9 Unique Wall Clocks

6. Fifty Five South Milk Bottle Cap Wall Clock

This cute Fifty Five South Milk Bottle Cap Wall Clock is a great find!

It's from I Want One Of Those and costs £33 (currently on offer for £16.99 – with a saving of £17!)

Its quirky shape resembles a milk bottle cap from days gone by, and the white clock will create a nice talking point on a kitchen wall – a room that would suit it well.

It's made of white aluminium, measures 39cm high by 39cm wide and 5cm depth and requires 1 AA battery.

7. Small Cream Wall Clock

This is the clock that I currently own in my kitchen. It's a simple and classic cream enamel wall clock in a small scale design, ideal for understated impact.

It features Roman numeral hands (which still baffles the kids when it comes to telling the time), but it suits my modern country/retro kitchen perfectly.

The wall clock, which is 23cm in diameter, is from Laura Ashley and costs £35, although at the time of writing it has been reduced to £18.90.

8. Birgen Wall Clock

With the industrial look a popular trend, this Birgen Wall Clock from Made will have heads turning.

It's made of grey and brass, combining two current trends in one piece. And although it looks like it's made of concrete, Birgen is made of a lightweight grey resin, which looks like concrete but it's much lighter – and won't crack!

This sophisticated wall clock takes 1 AA battery and costs £29.

9. Parlane Wall Clock Vestibule

This is possibly my favourite wall clock – hence why I've saved it for last!

I love its rusty, homely look and its dual use purpose. It features a handy basket for letters and stationery as well as an 8 hook key holder.
It's bound to suit one of the rooms in your home – or perhaps the perfect spot would be perfect in the hallway.

It's from NEXT, costs £99 and measures 94cm high by 36cm depth.

Libby Alexander 5th May 2018 - 6:58 pm

These are all gorgeous but I agree with you – my favourite is number 9. Perfect for my kitchen and would help me stay a little more organised too.

LaurettaCWright 5th May 2018 - 9:12 pm

Thanks Libby – it’s a good one isn’t it?

Sally Collingwood 4th May 2018 - 9:37 am

Love all these clocks especially Fifty Five South Milk Bottle Cap Wall Clock

Anneka Avery 4th May 2018 - 8:54 am

I’m in love with all of these! So cool and it’s amazing how the simple clock has now turned into a statement piece! Loving it!

LaurettaCWright 4th May 2018 - 9:21 am

I think anything could potentially be turned into a statement piece couldn’t it?

Mel 4th May 2018 - 8:32 am

Great selection of clocks! I love the swirl one, I wonder how hypnotising it would be if it actually spun around with the seconds!

LaurettaCWright 4th May 2018 - 9:21 am

Ha ha! Good point Mel, although I’m tired as it is, so I wouldn’t volunteer to find out!

Tracy Nixon 2nd May 2018 - 5:23 am

Love the little birdy house clock (no 3!)

LaurettaCWright 2nd May 2018 - 7:18 am

It’s super cute isn’t it Tracy. I wouldn’t mind one myself.

Georgie Wright 28th April 2018 - 9:42 pm

Nice collection of clocks but why do I have to like a couple of the most expensive ones most?! 😀

LaurettaCWright 2nd May 2018 - 7:09 am

You have good taste Georgie! But it could be worse I suppose…

CAROL PATRICK 28th April 2018 - 6:00 pm

I love number 6 it is so cheery for the kitchen where we love to make milky drinks. All of the clocks shown are lovely.

LaurettaCWright 2nd May 2018 - 7:10 am

Thanks Carol – really pleased you’ve seen some that you like!

Iris Tilley 28th April 2018 - 4:51 am

No.9 in the hallway
No.5 in kitchen (with my secret stash)
No.8 In our lounge
No.1 in my bedroom
No.3 Outside to teach the birds an exceptable time to wake me up.

LaurettaCWright 28th April 2018 - 2:40 pm

Love it Iris – brilliant! Although I’d probably advise against a clock in the bedroom – the ticking might keep you awake 😉 xx

jo liddement 27th April 2018 - 8:52 am

I love the Origami Clock. It’s such a statement piece.

LaurettaCWright 27th April 2018 - 9:05 am

It’s a great design Jo – and it would actually look in any sort of colour wouldn’t it?

Ashleigh Dougherty 24th April 2018 - 7:02 pm

The pink clock is my favourite, although they are all really nice. Perfect for my kitchen.

LaurettaCWright 24th April 2018 - 8:47 pm

Yes – it’s definitely the hands-down winner it looks like!

Jayne Townson 24th April 2018 - 12:04 pm

Those clocks all look fantastic, I love clock number three best though.

LaurettaCWright 24th April 2018 - 8:48 pm

I have a certain affinity for that one too – brings back childhood memories!

Cal at Family Makes 20th April 2018 - 7:12 pm

Gorgeous choices Lauretta! I like the Wine O Clock one (for obvious reasons!)

LaurettaCWright 21st April 2018 - 10:25 pm

Thanks Cal – and yes, I thought that one would go down a storm. My personal one would probably read tea ‘o’clock but it just doesn’t have the same ring about it does it?!

Angela Bethea 19th April 2018 - 6:33 am

The number one (Origami) and four (Geometric Swirl Rose Gold Clock) looks really lovely for me. I’m sure it will be a great addition to my office.

LaurettaCWright 19th April 2018 - 12:45 pm

Glad you’ve seen a couple you like Angela – I think those two were the firm favourites, with no.1 taking the top spot!

Beth @ BethinaBox.com 18th April 2018 - 6:40 pm

Totally with you on the Parlane Wall Clock Vestibule. That’s the one that took my eye immediately… and I may just find it in my shopping basket the next time I’m shopping at Next. Haha!

LaurettaCWright 18th April 2018 - 8:21 pm

I wouldn’t blame you if you did! Happy shopping 😉

Mellissa Williams 18th April 2018 - 6:18 pm

They are all so unique and gorgeous – I don’t think I could choose my favourite although the wine o’clock one did catch my eye first!

LaurettaCWright 18th April 2018 - 6:24 pm

I think everyone can relate to the wine o’clock (or their favourite tipple!)

Bethany 18th April 2018 - 3:46 pm

I absolutely love the first one, it’s so unique and defo makes a statement.

LaurettaCWright 18th April 2018 - 6:25 pm

That one definitely seems to be the favourite so far.

Ana 18th April 2018 - 10:16 am

I don’t know why but I have a thing for pretty clocks and let me tell you something 4 and 6 definitely fit the bill. I love the geometric rose gold clock with the swirl effect as I am a sucker for rose gold and the ‘milk clock’ is so retro and fun, its giving me a cool 60’s vibe which I love!

LaurettaCWright 18th April 2018 - 6:23 pm

Ah thanks Ana – glad you’ve spotted a couple that you like! What great taste you have 😉 xx

Helen Costello 17th April 2018 - 7:51 pm

I daore that Pink Origami clock and £38 is such a great price. Would look perfect in our newly decorated bedroom.

LaurettaCWright 24th April 2018 - 8:51 pm

Ooh you might have to treat yourself Helen! 😉

Yeah Lifestyle 17th April 2018 - 7:36 pm

The designs of these clocks are so lovely, I am looking to buy a clock at the moment for our upstairs bedroom and the Wine O Clock has caught my eye.

Bethanh 17th April 2018 - 5:39 pm

Him in love with number 1, it would go in my kitchen to much, so unique and powerful and definitely a statement.

LaurettaCWright 24th April 2018 - 8:51 pm

Yes it’s quite a statement piece isn’t it Bethan…there are plenty others like it too.

AnnMarie John 17th April 2018 - 10:53 am

All are so beautiful and it would be nice to at least have on at home. I wouldn’t mind getting the origami one for my bedroom! I think it’s really pretty!

LaurettaCWright 24th April 2018 - 8:52 pm

Put it on your wishlist AnnMarie and then conveniently leave the wishlist lying around somewhere for someone to see (that’s my trick!) 🙂

Laura Dove 17th April 2018 - 9:56 am

Oh wow what a great collection! I love the look of the pink ones, they would fit perfectly with our new bedroom!

Rhian Westbury 17th April 2018 - 5:25 am

Ohh I love the geometric swirl of number four, some really cool looking clocks there x

LaurettaCWright 17th April 2018 - 8:02 am

That seems to be a favourite so far! 🙂

Alison Rost 17th April 2018 - 3:03 am

I love creative wall clocks like the ones you shared! It’s really nice to have a pretty/fun looking one at home! My favorites are #1, #4, #6, and #8!

LaurettaCWright 17th April 2018 - 8:01 am

It’s great to go for something a bit different isn’t it Alison? Offers a great talking point.

Hannah wood 16th April 2018 - 6:42 pm

Many thanks for posting this as we need a nice new clock and has given me some good ideas.

LaurettaCWright 16th April 2018 - 7:54 pm

Best of luck Hannah!

Sarah Bailey 16th April 2018 - 6:35 pm

What some great ideas, I love the origami one, it’s like a real optical illusion to the eye!

LaurettaCWright 16th April 2018 - 7:54 pm

Yes definitely – it’s a piece of art in itself that one I think.

Kara 16th April 2018 - 4:11 pm

I adore the geometric swirl clock – my daughter is a big fan of rose gold and has just bought her first house so this is ideal

LaurettaCWright 16th April 2018 - 4:34 pm

Loving the rose gold look – it’s just so versatile.

Nichola - Globalmouse 16th April 2018 - 1:15 pm

What a brilliant selection. I love the look of that ‘Milk’ one in particular.

LaurettaCWright 16th April 2018 - 4:32 pm

Thanks Nichola – it’s a cutie isn’t it!

Sim @ Sim's Life 16th April 2018 - 10:40 am

I am still on the lookout for a unique wall clock for my dining room. There is so much inspiration in this post, some really lovely clocks! Sim x

LaurettaCWright 16th April 2018 - 10:48 am

Thanks Sim – glad you like the look of a few of them! 🙂
