7 Wall Clocks That Are Easy to Read

If you'd had any of these clocks a few days ago, you'd have had another clock to reset for the end of Daylight Saving Time — but they're so nice, you might not have minded.

The one above is from Karlsson, which makes a large range of wall clocks. Karlsson is now owned by Present Time, and I first found the company's clocks on the Present Time web site. Present Time doesn't list this specific clock, but does have many others. I did find this specific clock on Amazon's stores in the UK and France — and Karlsson has dealers around the world.

It's true that you have to change these clocks twice a year, but I know that my trusty battery-operated analog clock will not be blinking the wrong time when the power goes out, which happens several times a year.

It's nice to have a clock-face clock at home and at work and these are all great picks.

Love the clock blog! Just recently I was looking for a clock and noticed the vast variety of clocks that are out there now. Unique ones and create your own ones were my favorite.

Thanks for sharing all these great clocks.
