Review:  I have clocks all around my apartment.  I like knowing what time it is.  A few months back, the clock in my bathroom died and I’d been meaning to replace it.  When the review request for the 12 Inch Silent Non-ticking Wall Clock came to me, I couldn’t say no.

The clock is very sleek looking and would be a welcome addition to any room.  I chose to place it in the bathroom since I like knowing if I’m on schedule to get to work on time in the mornings.   When I saw that it had a thermometer and hygrometer on it as well, I was curious as to what the readings would look like.

So, the clock part first.  It tells great time.  I’ve had it a month, it hasn’t lost or gained any time.  It’s super quiet and it runs smoothly, not ticking off the seconds like a lot of clocks.  It’s large enough that I can read the time when I don’t have my glasses on.

The hygrometer also appears to be pretty accurate.  I live in a low humidity area, so it’s generally hovering around 40%.  Considering the clock is in the bathroom, I notice that it does go up a little following a shower.  I really don’t have a need for the hygrometer, but it’s nice to get that information every once in a while and as the temperatures increase I’m curious as to how it’ll read.

Now to the thermometer.  A lot of other reviewers complained that the Celsius numbers were more prominent than the Fahrenheit ones.  Honestly, that didn’t bother me at all.  What did was that the thermometer was stuck on 70-75 degrees (F) range all the time.  I’ve not had the heat on in my apartment for at least a month and no air conditioning running.  In fact, the high temperature today was about 60 degrees, so I had the windows all open.  With the breeze after the sun set, I even had to use a blanket to warm a little.  I checked the clock thermometer and it read 72.  There’s really no way that it is 72 degrees in my apartment.  The only time that I got the thermometer to read lower was to sit the clock on the windowsill one cool night and it finally dropped down to something around 50 degrees, and the metal frame was quite cold to the touch.  However, in the end, I don’t really need a thermometer in my apartment.  If the clock was outside, then I’d probably be a bit more concerned if it’s working accurately.  I might have to test it in peak summer and winter (highs above 90, lows well below freezing) and see what happens.

All in all, the clock looks nice and keeps time well.  If I *really* needed the other features then I wouldn’t be as happy with the clock as I am.  It’s been a nice addition to my time keeping efforts.
