What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to It's About Time: The Clock as a Focal Point
A large grouping of vintage table clocks on top of a cabinet makes an eye-catching display.
"I don't like things that are highly decorative," Lum says. "I like things that are highly mechanical." He displays his collection of old clocks (most of which don't function) atop a Ming Dynasty cabinet from the 1500s. "In Chinese culture, looking at nonworking clocks is considered very bad luck; I don't believe in that," he notes. The artwork above is a collage by Dennis McNulty.
Scheer & Co. added this to These Clocks Let the Good Times Roll
My husband has a thing for old clock and watch parts, so, by proxy, I also think they're neat. Clocks don't always have to be functional; small antique clocks displayed together quickly morph into an impromptu mantle vignette.
Clocks. Keep a collection corralled together ...
ds design studio added this to Put Your Collection on Show
Furniture surfaces. Any unused furniture surface could work for your collection. This chest features an assortment of old alarm clocks. The larger ones are towards the back so they don't block the smaller ones. Notice that this collector sneaked in a few black figurines that tie into the art work above.

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Collective Wisdom: Display Ideas for Collections of All Kinds
Once again notice how wall color can bring life and interest to a collection. This group of clocks is arrayed on one surface, with that fabulous color behind them, rather than being spread across the room. This approach creates great impact and avoids a cluttered feel.
