Wall clocks are the most common clocks we have around; they are specifically designed to be mounted on walls in homes, premises, and office to show time. They have a harmonic oscillator and a resonator which keeps vibrating at a given frequency. A resonator can either be a quartz crystal, a pendulum or vibrating electrons. Analog wall clocks indicate time using angles while digital ones have a numeric representation of time.
Antique wall clocks are decorative pieces and interior furnishes of many households. High-quality antiques are valuable and quite pricey as well.
Early innovations were erroneous until the mechanical water powered clock was made. This was replaced by spring; the pendulum was then innovated until recently when electric clocks powered by batteries were in use. Then the quartz was innovated and now atomic clocks are considered the most accurate clocks in existence.
