Looking for retro style on a budget? Look no further than these 1950s-style wall clocks from Rex London.
Of course, that’s if you need a clock. These days most of us sit staring at a phone or computer most of the time, with the clock visible pretty much all of the time. But that’s not always why you buy a clock.
You buy a clock because it’s an appealing piece of interior design. A focal point for a wall or just a pleasing piece of decoration. A design statement if you like or a nice finishing touch to a room, retro or otherwise.
There are so many options out there. My favourites are the handmade clocks by Royale Enamel right now, one of which sits on my kitchen wall. If you have the money, they are the perfect finishing touch to any midcentury modern room.
But if you don’t want something so stylised, but you do want something retro and functional, then have a look at these.
They are typical of industrial wall clocks from the 1950s, albeit with more colour than you would have found on a factory wall back then. 21cm in diameter with a face featuring retro numerals and a sweeping seconds hand. as I said, colour courtesy of the casing.
Battery operated and a very affordable piece of design. The colours come and go, but the price is still under £20. Just £19.99 for one of these.
