A great funky clock we have at Zurleys is the Industrial Cream Clock by Indian Hub, it features a rustic cream finish with a black metal frame and both roman numerals and numbers on the face.
The Industrial Cream Clock is closely followed by the Arial Clock which features a black metal frame with a multiple colour rustic wood face.
The Paris Retro Clock creates a great statement piece for a home with its large oversized face that dominates a wall. Designed to have a rustic and shabby finish, the retro clock includes a multi coloured distressed painted face and shabby black metal frame.
A brief History of Clocks
One of the first human inventions and originally the first clocks where sundials, hourglasses, water or candle clocks, It wasn’t until around the 1200s that the first true mechanical piece was built and this still looked vastly different to the pieces we think of today. Its wasn’t until the 17th century that the hands and dials we see now for hours and minutes was manufactured on a larger scale. Over time and the advancement of manufacturing you now see items will all kinds of wonderful designs.
Our pieces now feature a 12 hour dial but previously it was possible to purchase 24 hour dial faces (you may still be able to online). These were of course larger than your typical kitchen items you see today.
