Some Options In Clocks And Watches


When looking back at the history of timekeeping throughout mankind's history, there is a huge and vast amount of information and items to see and learn from. The clocks and watches of today are as varied as individuals and they all serve a purpose and fill a niche. In the category of home use, you can choose from everything from an alarm clock or children's clock that may cost you just a few dollars and be fabricated from plastics, all the way up to a very expensive antique grandfather clock or a vintage Omega watch that must be insured for thousands of dollars.

The wearing of a timepiece on the wrist leaves the realm of decor and enters the realm of jewelry as the pieces being worn are now able to be coordinated with the wearer's entire outfit. There are watches that are small and delicate with jewels and elegant square faces and there are large, chunky sport watches with a variety of dials and underwater capabilities. The clocks and watches available to today's consumer run the gamut from A to Z and include all possible permutations of each letter in between.

In the worlds of art and history, clocks and watches are a rich and varied topic on which to base an exhibition. There are places where an afternoon can be spent as you glance at your daily wear watch and gaze upon history's artifacts of the measure of time throughout the ages.

Watches are fashion statements and practical time measuring devices and the watches for the blind are purely functional with a minimum of styling since the user will be gathering the information from the braille dial that can be read when the hinged crystal is opened.

Antique clocks and watches fill another niche for collectors or decorators who have a room filled with unique and valuable items for a client. The antique watch can be often an heirloom that was passed down from relatives and the sentimental value can equal or exceed the monetary one. This mix of the practical with the aesthetic is the source of the strong appeal the timepieces have for so many.
