The Wall Clock


A wall clock is a clock that is attached on a wall. A clock is an instrument used to indicate time. The word clock is derived from the Celtic words clagan and clocca meaning “bell”. In today’s general usage, a “clock” refers to any device for measuring and displaying the time. The clock is one of the oldest human inventions.

The wall clock in the picture above is an electric clock. A Scottish clockmaker named Alexander Bain patented the electric clock in 1840.
