TICK TOCK

En­sure you get a good night’s sleep by in­vest­ing in a si­lent sweep clock if you plan on dis­play­ing it on a mantelpiece or shelf in your bed­room, or if it dou­bles up as an alarm clock.

GET CRE­ATIVE

Have a go at mak­ing your own time­piece by buy­ing a mech­a­nism (try Ama­zon) and drilling a hole through a wooden board to fit it into

place. Draw on the nu­mer­als or use some­thing un­usual such as wooden spoons or cut­lery for a quirky idea.

PER­FECT PICK

Choose a clock that fits in with your de­sign scheme and co­or­di­nates with your ex­ist­ing decor. For a sleek, mod­ern look, try a de­sign that has mar­ble or cop­per ac­cents, or for a retro fin­ish, go for a colour­ful piece with plenty of char­ac­ter.
