Classical design of a clock is already iconic, and you probably rarely see anything different than that. That’s why we want to shake things up a bit, and show you these 25 clever and unusual examples of clock designs.

An antique grandfather clock can be the perfect choice when you want something with an old-world style to finish off your home’s décor. Freestanding grandfather clocks date back to the 17th-century, when the long case held all the necessary mechanisms that were needed to power the clock, giving them their unique shape. A barrel organ (also called roller organ or crank organ) is a mechanical musical instrument consisting of bellows and one or more ranks of pipes housed in a case, usually of wood, and often highly decorated. The basic principle is the same as a traditional pipe organ, but rather than being played by an organist, the barrel organ is activated either by a person turning a crank, or by clockwork.
