With the right table clock, you can keep an eye on the time
A desk clock is a discreet time display that can be placed well on desks, reception desks or shelves. It is a shapely, precise and reliable extension of your equipment. In addition to a large selection of aesthetically pleasing table clocks, we also have excellent all-rounders for you in our range.
In the course of industrialization, the table clock came with the clocked working day. The compact timepieces came onto the market at the end of the 19th century. Industrial production made them affordable for ordinary workers. Table clocks replaced the mighty grandfather clocks and bulky wall clocks. Thanks to their compact design, they found a place in every rented apartment and became an important tool for regular working life. Even then, table clocks with numerous additional functions could be ordered. The chime at every hour or an alarm function was included in most models. Even today, the soothing ticking of a mechanical clockwork and the pleasant gong can create a particularly cosy atmosphere in traditional table clocks. For the most part, however, mechanical movements have now given way to precise and silent quartz movements. The electronic works also gave the designers complete freedom of design. This makes the table clock one of the most versatile objects of daily use today. In addition to a large selection of dial table clocks, we also offer folding number clocks, digital clocks and table clocks in a particularly unusual design.
The classic regulator, also known as the "Napoleon clock" or mantel clock, is the original design of the table clock. Made of dark wood with a centrally placed dial, the boxes still have many fans today. For the originalists, these quaint timepieces with traditional mechanical movement are available. With a gong every 15 minutes and an hourly chime, it continuously informs you of the current time without you having to look at it. This also allows you to keep an eye on the time when you are in another room. The high-quality regulators from our range have a three-year warranty. They are easy to clean and do not require any maintenance except for regular winding.
Bell glass watches, also called year clocks, are also design classics. The glass dome encloses the entire movement, including the dial. This type of watch is always in the late romantic style. A Roman dial, extensive gilding and the rotating pendulum movement made of four spheres are particularly typical of this design. Today, however, the movement has given way to precise quartz. This avoids the hassle of winding up and increases ease of use. Annual clocks have a 4/4 chime, but it can also be switched off. If you appreciate the advantages of the bell glass clock, but prefer a different design, we would like to recommend the showcase clocks. Instead of the cathedral, these clocks are housed in a small glass cabinet. These watches look especially good on the shelf.
The Westminster sound is standard for traditional watches. With our selection of skeleton watches, we also have the visual complements to it. In contrast to regulator, bell glass or display case clock, the movement of skeleton watches is completely open. This somewhat limits the usability of these watches. They are out of place in the kitchen or a workshop. Due to their design, they gather dust all too easily and can then malfunction. In a clean environment, however, they are the perfect addition to a classic interior.
Table clocks aren't just for traditionalists. We also offer you a large selection of these practical timepieces in a modern guise. In our delivery program you will find the watch that suits your interior. Common to all designer watches is the large, high-contrast dial. As aesthetic, shrill and unusual as your watch should be - you can read the time equally well on all of them. Browse around a bit. Whether it's a practice clock, office clock or reception desk, you'll find the right model for every occasion with us. But no matter which design you choose, less is usually more. It's better to choose a slightly less flashy model so that you don't get tired of it too quickly. TIP: Take a look at the "word clock". This young design is really trendy right now.
Those who have been declared dead live longer - this is especially true for the folding number clock. Who would have thought that the ancestor of digital watches would once again rise from the grave of technology and design? But they are back, the shrill, quaint technical wonders with the funny design. At the latest since the memorable appearance in the film "Groundhog Day", watches with folding numbers have enjoyed great popularity again. We carry a small but fine selection of these very special table clocks with their typical stoic, confident charisma.
Form follows function - this guiding principle may not apply to classic table clocks. However, digital watches are beyond reproach in terms of their functionality. With us you will find digital table clocks that can do more. From ultra-precise radio-controlled clocks to complete weather stations, from large-format luminescent numerals to calendar week displays, there's nothing that doesn't exist when it comes to digital table clocks. By the way: Design is also a function. So how about something very special? The Nixie digital clock with its quaint fluorescent tubes is not just something for steampunk fans.
A table clock only works when it is seen. At the same time, however, it should not appear intrusive. Looking at a beautiful watch is one thing. But being constantly reminded of the passing of time is something else entirely. Discretion is one of the biggest advantages of the table clock. Unlike mighty wall clocks and grandfather clocks, these practical timepieces can also be easily placed on the shelf or in the display case. The only important thing is that it can be seen from as large a corner of the room as possible. If you want to move the watch further away, you should choose a model with a correspondingly large dial. But don't put your desk clock on the windowsill. Otherwise, you look directly at the sun every time you just want to read the time. It is better placed opposite the window. The dial then only reflects the natural light from outside and it no longer flashes your eyes.
A table clock is set up once and then remains in place for a longer period of time. This makes them susceptible to dust. Annual clocks, display case clocks and regulators are fully enclosed. This makes cleaning particularly easy. Most designer watches have an open dial, but a cased mechanism. The dial of this type of watch is designed in such a way that it can also be easily cleaned. A wipe with a feather duster is therefore completely sufficient. Digital watches and annual watches can be cleaned with glass cleaner. A table clock with wooden case becomes shiny and beautiful again with polish. Some designer watches have a body made of slate or another mineral. Here, a light soapy water will help you to clean the table clock. For a skeleton watch, we recommend using a handheld vacuum cleaner in addition to dusting. This keeps the mechanics dust-free and ready for operation.
We hope we were able to make it a little easier for you to choose the right table clock. You have a full three-year warranty for every watch from our range from the date of purchase.
