The 10 Best wall clocks

Keep time in style with our selection of top clocks, from the plain and simple to the weird and woolly

1. Gisela Graham Blue Ship

£17, debenhams.com

A playful bit of kitsch with a distinct nautical feel – witness the ships and seagulls. Has easy-to-read red numbers, so ideal for kids.

2. Flap Analogue

£60, habitat.co.uk

The pleasing flip and modish face make this a well-known design classic beloved of banks and building societies the world over.

3. Diamantini & Domeniconi Tablita

£39, awhiteroom.com

The face is a chalkboard on which you can write sweet nothings (or else reminders to walk the pooch).

4. John Lewis Silver Bird

£50, johnlewis.com

A dainty little bird sits on the side of this open-faced black bar clock, as if it is has paused for a momentary sing-song.

5. Newgate Bullit

£65, selfridges.com

Rocket-age shape and the stark black Arabic numerals redolent of the Sixties. It's relatively hardy, too, in durable acrylic.

6. Riccio

£130, conranshop.co.uk

This has a pleasing down-home quality to it, the result, presumably, of the granny-like knitting which encases the face.

7. Lexon Side

£31, giftswithstyle.co.uk

Created to stick out proud from the wall or down from the ceiling. But you can mount it the old fashioned flat way, too.

8. John Lewis Silver Spike

£30, johnlewis.com

John Lewis describes this as looking like an exploded clock face, but we think it looks more like a snow flake.

9. Karlsson White Falling Numbers

£38.99, goclock. com

Seemingly all the numbers have slid down the face. Cool, but perhaps not the easiest to read.

10. Next Time Projection

£85, contemporaryheaven.com

Not, in the strictest sense, a wall clock, but it does project the time, date and year onto your wall.
