Large Atomic Wall Clocks – Bold and Dramatic

Large atomic wall clocks can make a bold and dramatic statement in almost any room. Being the most accurate time piece around, the atomic clock can definitely serve to keep us on track with our frenzied modern-day schedules. Color and design are secondary with this style of wall clock, as the trademark of this clock is infrequent need for setting and its automatic adjustment for time changes.

Atomic clocks are the most precise in the world. They are radio-controlled clocks which receive a radio signal from the top-dog of clocks, the Cesium Fountain atomic clock located in Boulder, Colorado. It is important to note that one of these clocks purchased in the U.S. will not work in another country such as Europe or the Far East, as each clock contains a chip specific to a particular region.

Large-style atomic clocks are available online for as little as $39.97. Many models come with an all-digital face which in addition to the time, displays inside and outside temperatures and the day of the week and date. This style of clock is also available with the more traditional face of Arabic numbers and a temperature thermometer. Many digital styles come with extra large numbers for easy reading.

If you have a taste for more classic styles, you may want to find a large Roman numeral wall clock. Nearly every variation of wall-style clock comes with a Roman-numerals option for the face of the clock. One of the most enduring styles – the schoolhouse clock – is even more charming with a Roman-numeral style face.

The price varies depending on the size of the clock, the materials used, and the complexity of the mechanical movements. Whether you choose the ultra-modern atomic clock or a vintage-style clock with Roman numerals, a wall clock makes a fine addition to any home’s décor.
