8 Modern Wall Clocks to Help You Keep Track of Time
View Slideshow

Wall clocks have the ability to make a functional statement as wall art or objet d’art, whether you have batteries in it or not (guilty!). And while keeping track of the hour and minute might be the last thing you feel like doing during summer, sometimes it’s a must – so it may as well look good doing it. Here are eight favorites from our clock collection that will ease the pain of it already being July, if even just a little bit.

Blackened Oak RESET Clock by MARdiROS
A minimal design with both natural beauty and a very clever touch. As every minute passes the outer edge lowers slightly, and at the top of every hour it resets to do it all over again.

Analogue Aluminum Clock Digital Clock by Gingko
Inspired by a traditional clock face, but updated with digital technology, it’s an objet d’art that’s sure to stand out. Place it on a surface or mount it to a wall, then keep an eye on the second dot as it circles the face and appears to magically dance.
