GUIDE TO CHOOSING A WALL CLOCK

Home accessories are a set of objects that complement the decor of a room, adding details that emphasise its overall style. Among these home accessories, the lion's share certainly goes to the wall clock, which is present in every room of the house. Large, small, sober, antique, modern, colourful, the wall clock marks the fractions of time in our lives.

The CalleaDesign workshop has been designing and manufacturing furnishing accessories since 1967 in its workshop in Trieste, which has now become a modern workshop.

Based on our knowledge and long experience, we have answered a few short questions to guide you in making an informed choice.

 

WHAT TYPES OF WALL CLOCKS DO YOU OFFER?

 

WHAT ARE THE BEST MODERN WALL CLOCKS?

Top quality is achieved when first-class materials are entrusted to highly qualified experts. Our production does not involve mass processes; instead, each product is the result of in-house processing in our workshop in Trieste. Each item is rigorously tested, certified and carefully identified, thus guaranteeing the highest level of after-sales service.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE A WALL CLOCK?

Choosing the ideal wall clock requires attention to several factors, including the room in which it will be placed, its function and our personal taste in aesthetics. Here is how you can orient yourself:

  1. Size according to room: The size of the clock is influenced by the room in which it will be placed. In smaller spaces, such as the kitchen or bathroom, it is advisable to opt for clocks with diameters of up to 30 centimetres.
  2. Dimensions for the living area: Living areas, which are usually larger, require larger clocks. These clocks can have diameters between 40 and 60 centimetres, or even exceed one metre in diameter. They can also serve as important decorative elements on the walls, almost like paintings.
  3. Prestige in the office or study: If you want a clock that adds a touch of prestige to an office or study, consider clocks with sophisticated designs, company logos or dials with time zones. These clocks can help create a professional atmosphere.
  4. Quiet for the bedroom: In the bedroom, quiet operation is essential in order not to disturb sleep. In this case, it is advisable to opt for clocks equipped with the best quartz mechanisms, known for their silent operation.

In summary, the choice of size and style of the wall clock will depend on ambience, function and aesthetic preferences. Be sure to also consider the quietness of the mechanism, especially if the clock will be placed in a quiet area such as the bedroom.

 

WHERE TO PUT THE WALL CLOCK?

The ideal location to put a wall clock depends on several factors, including the function of the clock, the size of the clock and the decor of the room. Here are some general guidelines on where to place a wall clock:

  1. Living area: In many homes, wall clocks are placed in the living area, such as the living room or dining room. You can hang it above a sofa, sideboard or console. Make sure it is at a comfortable reading height, usually at eye level when sitting or standing.
  2. Kitchen: A kitchen clock can be hung on a wall near the area where you prepare meals or where you usually eat. This can help you monitor the time while cooking and make your kitchen more functional.
  3. Bedroom: In the bedroom, a wall clock can be placed above the bed or on a wall near your make-up or dressing area. Make sure it is silent so as not to disturb your sleep.
  4. Bathroom: A wall clock in the bathroom can help you monitor the time during your morning routine. It can be placed over the sink or near the shower or bathtub.
  5. Office or study: In a professional environment, a wall clock can be placed above the desk or in a visible area. It can also have features such as time zones for international business purposes.
  6. Entrance: A wall clock can be a hospitable welcome in the entrance of your home. Place it above a small table or console to make a good impression on visitors.
  7. Thematic rooms: In themed rooms or rooms where the décor follows a particular style, you can choose a clock that complements the theme. For example, in a vintage room, you might prefer a vintage clock.
  8. Blank wall: If you have a blank wall that needs filling, a wall clock can be a decorative choice to add style and functionality.

Remember to consider visibility, the size of the clock and natural or artificial light when choosing the location. Make sure the clock is at a comfortable height for reading and that it fits in with the decor and style of the room.

 

HOW TO HANG A WALL CLOCK?

To hang a wall clock correctly, follow these steps:

  1. Choose the location: Decide where you want to hang the wall clock. Make sure it is at a comfortable reading height and that it is in a visible position.
  2. Find the centre: Locate the spot where you want to place the clock and find the centre of its position on the wall.
  3. Measure and mark: Use a tape measure to measure the distance from the centre of the clock to where it will be hung. Use a pencil to mark this point on the wall.
  4. Make a hole: Use a drill and a drill bit to make a hole in the wall where you marked the hanging point. Make sure that the diameter of the hole is suitable for the type of anchor or support you will use for the clock. If you are hanging the clock on a plasterboard wall, be sure to use a plasterboard anchor.
  5. Insert the anchor: Insert a dowel or anchor into the hole you have created. Make sure it is stable and secure.
  6. Fix the bracket: Place the bracket or clock hook on the anchor and fix it firmly. Make sure it is level and straight.
  7. Hang the clock: You can now hang the watch on the stand or hook. Make sure it is well fixed and secure.
  8. Adjust the clock: Adjust the clock according to the manufacturer's instructions. If necessary, make sure it is level and well aligned.
  9. Check stability: Once hung, check the stability of the clock to ensure that it is well suspended and that it does not move or sway abnormally.

Always be sure to follow the specific instructions provided by the clock manufacturer, as details may vary depending on the type of clock and support. Also, when drilling holes in the wall, beware of any electrical cables or water pipes that might run through the area, to avoid accidental damage.

 

WHAT MECHANISMS DO YOU USE FOR YOUR WALL CLOCKS?

All mechanisms used in our CalleaDesign clocks are of German origin and are classified as quartz mechanisms. This designation refers to the use of the precise vibration of quartz, triggered by an electric current, to ensure a highly accurate measurement of time.

 

ARE WALL CLOCKS SILENT?

Quartz mechanisms, which do not have a second hand, operate completely silently. Any potential noise that does occur is usually due to misaligned positioning or particular humidity conditions in the air. In contrast, pendulum and radio-controlled mechanisms may produce a slight noise during their operation.

 

ARE THERE ALSO RADIO-CONTROLLED WALL CLOCKS?

Certainly many models provide the option of installing the radio-controlled mechanism in place of the normal quartz one. For a considered choice of radio-controlled mechanism, we recommend reading our magazine article.

 

WHAT ACCESSORIES COME WITH THE WALL CLOCK?

Each CalleaDesign wall clock comes with an AA battery and a wall plug with a screw for wall installation. For models with a more complex installation process, detailed step-by-step instructions and a cardboard template are also included, making assembly extremely easy and precise.

 

WHERE ARE THE WALL CLOCKS MADE?

All our creations are designed and manufactured in our workshop in Trieste, in San Dorligo della Valle to be exact.

 

WHAT GUARANTEE DO THE WALL CLOCKS HAVE?

In order to avoid any inconvenience, the products are checked before being shipped. However, the customer benefits from the manufacturer's 24-month warranty. To obtain warranty service, the customer must provide the details of the warranty certificate or invoice or delivery slip.

 

HOW CAN WALL CLOCKS BE CUSTOMISED?

There are two types of routes:

  • The first involves the complete customisation of the product in terms of graphics. These are the products in the CUSTOM line which also include the product configurator with a preview of the desired combination.
  • The second path, on the other hand, involves customising one of the standard products offered in the catalogue. There are several options to make your purchase unique and customised:
  1. Variation of the standard colours with colours from our colour chart, RAL or NCS.
  2. Laser engraving of a phrase on the watch face.
  3. Gift wrapping. Option of gift wrapping with a customisable card.

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOMISED MODERN WALL CLOCKS FOR THE CORPORATE SECTOR?

Of course, we specialise in working with companies that request us to provide the service of designing and producing miniature clocks according to the characteristics required by the customer.
