17th Century World Map Wall Clock
Reviewed By: Peter Stip on August 29, 2013
The vintage world map of the 17th century gives me a feel of adventure. It’s the time when new continents where explored and new ideas developed. The 17th Century World Map Wall Clock gives you the idea to explore and go there for yourself.
The World Map Wall Clock almost works as a time machine. It makes you dreamy, or at least made me dreamy. Wondering about how it would be like to live in the 17th century and explore the strange new worlds.
The world opened up by great man like Marco Polo and Columbus, man traveled by land and by sea, exploring new landscapes with different vegetation and animal life. Cultures from far away places came into contact with the west Europeans, for good or for worse… Life changed, the mentality of people changed, the horizon became bigger.
This vintage wooden world map clock does remind me of these exciting times.

Picture quality of the wall clock
The image of the world map is coated with a special gel that protects it and gives it a long durability. Personally I love the typographics of the numbers. Well chosen for the vintage design.
My verdict of the 17th century world map wall clock.
I love the clock, the touch and feel are warm. The quality of the wood and the picture of the world looks good. It is a great clock for the study or the living room. I think that the price of the wall clock is not to expensive compared with other clocks and the decent quality of this world map clock.
