Roundup: Bold, Basic Clocks

In case this young girl is worried about running late, she can double-check her train times on the 19th-century clock above her head. Featured in the 1920s film Brief Encounter, the clock at Carnforth Railway Station in England is wound by hand each week. While I'm not keen on winding a clock weekly, I do love this clock's bold, basic look.

For a similar look, try the Arne Jacobsen Romer Clock ($370), which was designed for the Rathaus in Aarhus, Denmark in 1937. With bold Roman numerals and a thin band of black around the circumference, the clock will tell you the time in a non-nonsense, handsome manner.

Oooh great finds. I love the $55 classic clock. I have a very boring cheap clock in my kitchen that I'd love to replace.

i love basic wall clocks like these, or big hanging ones like in stations. i actually bookmarked not so long about a basic customised clock which i wanted to get as a wedding present, different sizes and colours but definitely fitting with this 'basic' theme:
