Selecting an Oversized Clock: Styles and Function

Large decorative wall clocks are commonly known as oversized wall clocks, and they can be both highly functional and fashionable at the same time.

One of the reasons that these big wall clocks are popular is because they are easy to read from a distance—in general, the larger the clock, the farther away you can be and still tell the time. In large spaces such as those found in schools and businesses, therefore, these clocks can be very functional. The INFINITY/ITC 90/0019 clock, for example, is popular in this type of setting. It has a 19” diameter, operates on one AA battery, and features quartz movement. It has a basic and classic design, but if you want something fancier, there are certainly lots of other choices.

Many of these giant clocks are very easy to hang, and very easy to maintain. It is very common for them to be powered by one AA battery. (As with most battery-operated devices, purchase of batteries tends to be separate.) Many of these clocks are reasonably light, but in any case be sure to secure them properly on the wall. (Note: if you are installing a wall clock on sheet rock, a snap toggle can support up to 75 pounds, and it’s an easy way to drill into the sheet rock.)
