wanna help me find a wall clock?

fourambluesFebruary 8, 2013

My kitchen reno is almost complete. Lots of little punch list items for DH, plus backsplash for me. But I need for it to start feeling warmer and lived in, so I'm thinking about decorating now. There's a large, empty wall that needs something, and a clock would be a useful thing there (can't see any other clock from the dining table). I bought a Restoration Hardware clock that's just right:

Only it was defective, as was the replacement they sent me. I'm not trying a third time. (You'd think that, given the cost of RH items, they'd be better quality. Their customer service was good, though -- took back both with no challenge and no cost to me in the end.)

So, here's what I liked about that clock: the size, 28" (I want min 18" and max 30"), the dark metal case with clean lines, the sort of rustic finish, the Arabic numerals, and the cost (less than $200 shipped). What I didn't like, but could have lived with, and which you can't see in the pic: the faux aged clock face.

So do any of you know of a clock that would fit all the above criteria?

Thanks!

I've had this site bookmarked for ages and keep looking for my perfect clock. Unfortunately shipping, duties and handling to Canada is killing me. They have tons though and you're sure to find something you like.

On the left hand side you can plug in your criteria and narrow down the search.

dawn, it's obscene how much time I've spent on wayfair in the last few days (good call!) and I THOUGHT I'd seen every clock, but... Gina, that clock is so cool, and I hadn't seen it. Unfortunately, it's got Roman numerals. I've got a little one who's learning to tell time, so I want Arabic. Also, the clocks with Roman tend towards old-world, and I'm leaning industrial/contemporary.

Thanks for the ideas, gals!

lyban, that one's already on my short list! kkay, ticking doesn't bother me so much, at least not in the living space. Only somewhat related, I recently got an old Dualit toaster. When I fire it up it sounds like it needs to be disarmed FAST. I thought it would drive me crazy, but I got used to it in a couple of days, thankfully.

Oops, was posting at the same time as you, lyban. The etsy clocks look promising, thanks! Tonight I'll be spending an obscene amount of time on etsy. :)

OK, I decided to get a clock that busted the budget. (So I didn't even stick with the criteria I listed!) I ordered it from homedecorators.com:

I sure hope this one keeps time correctly. Thanks for all the suggestions from everyone!!
