The station clock changed the world

The station clock has changed the world from North America. Train travel in the USA around 1840 was still very time-consuming. Since then, the mail has been transported by train. For those waiting for the mail and travelers, however, the up to 70 different regional times in the USA were a major nuisance. In order to bring some order to this jumble of different times, and the travelers did not have to be completely confused, several clocks of different times were installed at train stations. The station clock was born. Unfortunately, this did not help enough. There were still too many times to consider. The American Charles Dowd proposed to divide the United States into four time zones. As of November 1883, these time zones are standard time at all North American train stations and post offices. Of course, this time had to be awarded in all official places. And so the station clock continues to spread. In 1900, this system was adapted for the whole world and the 24 time zones of the world were created.

Simple and intriguing design

It is not uncommon for the hanging of a station clock to completely change the impression of space in an apartment and create a whole new sense of space. It is precisely this contrast of hanging a clock in one's own home, which is actually at home in the transport sector, that is in great demand. Even in the big clocks do very well. They are definitely an eye-catcher.
Timeless and elegant are just a few attributes that apply to wall-mounted station clocks. Due to the reduced design, they offer an ideal counterpoint to a playful home interior. Nowadays, the minimalism of this is often associated with the words retro or antique. Also because the simple elegance of the station clocks can hardly be found anywhere else in this day and age.
