Decorate Your Space with A Special Wood Wall Clock

Every home needs a clock, but why settle for a strictly utilitarian timepiece when you can have a work of art? Technology and art merge in these timeless mechanisms, ensuring you can find a clock in pretty much any shape, size, or style.

With wood map wall clocks, you can look at the time and be reminded of the time of your life. Each clock features a detailed map of a specific location, bringing to mind your favorite vacation or a bucket-list trip you are planning.

Why Wood Map Wall Clocks?

Just like full-sized wood maps, WoodChart 3D wood wall clocks feature precise bathymetric details and stunning topography to create functional works of art. Artists etch the landscape’s fine points into a piece of high-quality birch wood, and the land portion is affixed to another layer with the water’s details. Each map includes details both above and below the seas and lakes.

These timepieces create a beautiful focal point in any room. Hang your clock in a common area where people can read the time and enjoy the details highlighted around your favorite nautical location. Consider incorporating it into a display dedicated to a memorable trip, your hometown, or your home away from home.

5. The Great Lakes Wood Clocks

What could be greater than a clock of the Great Lakes? A vacation destination for many in the Midwest, the Great Lakes are worth celebrating. The region includes:

  • Lake Michigan
  • Lake Superior
  • Lake Huron
  • Lake Erie
  • Lake Ontario

The lakes comprise the largest freshwater system in the world and are an incredible fishing destination for many travelers. Many fun facts might draw you to the Great Lakes, and any lake vacation should be remembered with a timeless memento like one of the wall clocks of the lakes.

Check Out Quartz Tide Wall Clocks for an Extra-Special Feature

Hilton Head Tide Clock

Are you interested in the ebb and flow of the tide at your favorite beach? A quartz tide wall clock might be the perfect timepiece for you. In addition to the beautiful etchings and bathymetric details of a traditional wood clock, a tide clock also predicts the tides throughout the day.

A lunar day is 24 hours and 50 minutes, with two high tides every lunar day. Because of these two facts, tide wall clocks rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes. You can set your tide-predicting timepiece with an internet search for high tide in your area or set it at the full or new moon. Then, you will always know where the tide is with a quick glance at your stunning clock.

These wood wall clocks are best suited for areas of more predictable tides in the Eastern United States. Tides on the U.S. West Coast and the Gulf of Mexico are more unpredictable, and a quartz tide clock would not stay accurate.

With the right timepiece, checking the time can momentarily transport to an unforgettable trip or a sentimental spot. Wood wall clocks are the perfect addition to any room where memories are shared.
