Kitchen Wall Clocks
Still looking for kitchen wall clocks?
You know the one that is going to be the focus of your kitchen area. Finding just the right one to hang up on your wall might take a little bit of research.
Time! We, as people, have all been curious about it. In the beginning time was known by the way the sun looked in the sky. We could easily establish morning from night and even midday, but we had no idea of exactly what time it was.
Around 3500 B.C. we used sundials to tell time. In or around 1400 B.C., in Egypt, water clocks were discovered. Improvements with this means of time measurement increased the accuracy of time establishment.
In the 1500s, a spring-powered clock was invented in Germany, still not accurate. The search continued for that perfect mechanism that would tell us exactly what time it was. In the 1600s, pendulum clocks were invented. In the mid 1800s, they invented pendulum batteries that were powered by external batteries.
Finally, in the early 1900s, clocks were made with the batteries hidden inside the clock.
Kitchen clocks come in various sizes, shapes and even themes. Some examples of kitchen wall clocks are:
- traditional clock in a neutral color
- brushed metal
- stainless steel
- retro turquoise
- clock with a timer built-in
- nautical clock
- mirrored background clock
- clock featuring the date
- clock featuring the time zone
- day clocks
