This is a large wall clock in Prague - an astronomical clock, in fact.

If you live in a larger city here in the U.S. or abroad, you are likely to have seen some of these large wall clocks around town.  In the past, most larger cities had one in the town square or local train station.  They kept the time and also everyone to a unified rhythm of life.  Their presence in hotel lobbies and gathering places marked the very events that were taking place.  Now, you can bring this same old-world charm into your home with a large wall clock.  The older wrought iron behemoths of the past are not your only choice.

Whether you are thinking about a metal or wood wall clock, there are many styles to suit any taste and budget.  If you are looking for a more budget friendly and replica style wall clock, you find those at your local large chain department stores.  They usually cost in the $100-200 range.  However, if you want to make more of a statement in a home office or den, then finding a classic antique wall clock will set you back a bit more – possibly into the lower four figures or more.
