Watching and thinking of the time, we might not consider the design of the clock itself that we look at when we want to know the time. The clocks can be definitely all of the different shapes, sizes and designs. Interesting, unusual, appealing, weird, scary, fantastic, these are the features of the modern clock’s design.

Here, we have put together a nice and interesting collection of some of the unusual and coolest clocks ever made. Clock is one of the oldest and most useful inventions human have made. The main purpose of a clock is to tell the time, but apart from that, some of the nice and appealing clocks are used as wall decorating accessory.

Some creative minds have developed these cool and interesting wall clocks in order to make watching time and waking up to an alarm clock a fun activity.

We hope that you will like this collection and find these interesting and exciting clocks appealing.

Melted Clock

Clocks are one of the few items that are both useful and decorative. That is why people always try to incorporate them in all sorts of decorative projects. This particular clock is called the Melting Clock and it has a very suggestive name. The famous Dali painting “The Persistence of Memory”, a naturalist painting where there is a melting pocket watch that resembles this one, inspired its design. Someone had the great idea to use that concept and to make it reality. The clock was designed to be used on a shelf, on the desk or on any surface with an edge. It appears to be melting and falling off, like a piece of chocolate. Even though it is uncommon and a little awkward, it is a very creative design and it would make a very fun gift. It might be a little difficult to read the time at first but you will quickly get used to it and the effort is well worth.
