Sneak Peek: Rustic Wall Clock Kit

We are excited to be working on a new clock kit product that will be introduced later this year. This rustic-inspired wall clock features a stacked top and base that compliments the basic style of the frame.

sneak-peek

Once assembled, this clock will be a nice, medium-sized timepiece that’s sure to look great on any wall in your home. Our model above is finished with chalk paint and dark wax distressing to achieve an antique look that compliments the style of the clock.

Kit specifics

The finished dimensions of this clock will measure 16-7/8” Height x 11-1/2” Width x 4-1/2” Depth. The glass opening (dial viewing) in the front of the clock measures 9-3/8″ square.

Still in the works…

As we finish up the final details of this new clock kit, one of the pieces to be decided is the clock movement that will be offered with this clock making kit. It will be a non-pendulum quartz clock movement that will accommodate a 1/4” thick dial board thickness. We have a couple of options to choose from and look forward to finalizing that part.

Also, we will be designing a new clock dial (face) for this clock kit. The dial is in the beginning stages of being designed, but we will post an update to this page once it’s complete. Last but not least, the specific type of lumber the kit will be offered in is not set in stone. We are leaning toward a wood like Poplar because it is suitable for staining and painting.

Stay tuned!

We look forward to introducing this new wall clock kit in the near future! Be sure to check out our other clock kits here:

Product Review: Rectangle Cuckoo Clock

Rectangle Cuckoo ClockKlockit’s new rectangle cuckoo clock puts a modern twist on traditional cuckoo clocks. Interested in learning more? Read our review below to find out how this unique cuckoo clock works, what its most notable features are, and who should buy it. Feel free to leave your own review of this product in the comments section below.

How Does It Work?

Every hour on the hour, the doors on this cuckoo clock open and a small bird emerges to sing its song. Choose from 12 delightful bird sounds, or select the special cuckoo call. At dusk, the built-in light sensor automatically silences the bird sounds for a peaceful night’s sleep.

This cuckoo clock also features a large clock case made from lightweight metal, and doubles as a message board. Use the two included bird magnets to stick messages to the clock’s front. The attractive pendulum and bob are powered by a precise clock movement and gently swing below the clock case.

Notable Features

At first glance, you’ll notice that this cuckoo clock puts a modern twist on traditional cuckoo clocks. But that’s not the only notable feature this unique cuckoo clock has to offer. The attractive design on the clock’s front doubles as a message board, complete with two bird-shaped magnets.

In the back, you’ll find the clock’s back panel is magnetic and can be removed in seconds for easy access to the clock movement. This cuckoo clock is larger than the traditional cuckoo clock, but is made from lightweight metal material and is easy to hang on the wall.

Who Should Buy It?

Our new rectangle cuckoo clock is the perfect modern timepiece for any home or office setting. It’s easy to set up out of the box and hang on the wall. Of course it’ll look great on your wall, but this unique cuckoo clock also makes a great birthday or holiday gift!

Sneak Peek: Westmont Bracket Clock

We are pleased to announce the Westmont Bracket Clock, which has been given the official “go ahead” to proceed as a Klockit clock kit product. But before heading to the Klockit website to look up this beautiful gem, understand it’s still in the product development stage. However, we can certainly tantalize you with an exclusive preview!

This clock assembly features laminate-assembly base plates. When assembled, the combined plates create a gradually diminishing classical roman profile of coves with bead. westmont

The trim and end cap pieces promote a modest, yet stylish, ogee profile which gives way to single vein columns that frame the clock face opening in symmetric sophistication. A removable case back panel allows for quick and easy access to the clock movement within.

The result? Finished design perfection.

We have selected an elegant European-style clock face, with glass and hinged bezel to compliment the warm, natural hue of the solid cherry wood case assembly. While the initial premise of many new Klockit designs is to allow customers their choice of movement, the Westmont will prove to be no exception.

We plan to offer two different versions: A battery-operated quartz version (see #12001 for movement features) and a Westminster chime mechanical movement version (see #13006 for movement features). Both movements offer rich chimes and quality timekeeping that will continue to please throughout the many years you will enjoy this heirloom clock assembly.

There is plenty more to comment and compliment about this new kit assembly, which should be making its way to customers about mid 2013!
