Size, material and design: these are what you should pay attention to when buying
Pendulum clocks differ fundamentally in terms of their size, the material used and the design, and thus appear very different. Here you can find out what to look for when buying.
Pendulum clocks made of wood look particularly homely and with their special grain radiate a feeling of warmth and cosiness. Dark woods like walnut look very noble, light tones light and fresh.
Pendulum clocks with metal fittings or made of polished stainless steel or aluminum appear cool and elegant. They set beautiful shiny accents and in classic gold colors, the tasteful timepieces can be stylishly combined with dark furniture.
While table clocks, especially in sizes cm to about 30 occur, clocks fall already significantly bigger. Many models have a width between 20 and 30 cm and a height between 60 and 80 cm. In this way, they come into their own as a tasteful wall decoration without taking up too much space.
Large pendulum clocks in the form of grandfather clocks on PaulWallClocks look impressive and imposing due to their size. Models up to 2 m high are certainly eye-catchers and can become the focal point of your living room.
Simple designs with few decorations and clear forms emphasize the functional character of the pendulum clocks. Inserts made of stainless steel or glass appear puristic and fit in well with the modern living style. Dial with Roman numerals and curved shapes provide more antique charm. If you cannot decide whether you prefer it purist or cozy, choose a model with wood and metal elements.
Out of time: this is how you set your pendulum clock correctly
If your pendulum clock is out of step and no longer shows the correct time, you can easily set the time indicator correctly again. You should proceed as follows.
If the ticking is uneven, align the pendulum clock at an angle until the ticking sounds regularly again.
Then move the pendulum in the direction of the incline until you feel resistance. The movement realigns the pendulum.
You can then turn the clock back upright. Check the ticking again. If it is still uneven, repeat the first and second steps.
If the ticking is constant, set the correct time.
