25 unique travel-themed wall clocks for travelers

Travel wall clocks for large budgets

#1 Racing bike wheel clock

This super cool clock is not only one of the best travel wall clocks, but it is also one of the best clocks for cyclists!

It’s a unique decorative item, but keep in mind that it’s handmade from an actual racing wheel, meaning that the clock is rather large (about 56 cm by 56 cm).

You can also tweak the clock to your personal preference by picking the colors of the hands, adding a decorative brake disc, and a brand sticker.

#2 Heart-shaped clock

Are you looking for a unique wedding gift for traveler lovers?

Then this clock in the shape of a heart with a personalized map is perfect!

You can pick a map of the country where the happy couple got married or engaged, or where they went for their honeymoon.

And if you are not looking for travel wall clocks for a wedding, this heart-shaped clock is still an awesome clock because you can simply pick the location of any place in the world.

And if the heart is putting you off, check out #8 for more personalized map clocks!

#3 Tide clock

Tide clock

This clock not only shows you the time but also shows the tides!

I think this is one of the best travel wall clocks for boaters, people who love the ocean, and beach lovers.

There is one thing to keep in mind when buying a tide clock though.

Make sure that the clock is set to represent the tides at the right location.

For example, this tide clock shows the Atlantic time and tides and it does not accurately represent the tides in the Gulf of Mexico.

#4 England-themed wall clock

Are you looking for unique wall clocks for travelers who love England?

Or are you an England lover yourself?

Then this handpainted clock in the theme of an English church clock is an awesome home decor item for you!

It’s available in green and grey and it’s water-resistant, which means the clock can be used both inside and outside.

And for more clocks for England lovers, check out #24.

#5 World map acrylic wall clock

Acrylic world map clock

This beautiful acrylic world map clock will not only tell you the time, but it is also an eyecatching decor item for your home!

Keep in mind that it’s also one of the largest wall clocks for travelers on this list. The clock comes with the entire world map and the quote with backpacker on the right bottom. The total measurements are 120 x 55 cm (47 x 21 inches), so make sure you save plenty of space on your wall for this beautiful clock.

#6 Cuckoo clock

Cuckoo clock

This is by far the most expensive clock on this list, but it’s also one of the best wall clocks for travelers who love Germany.

Cuckoo clocks are one of the most popular souvenirs to bring home after a visit to Germany (and some other German-speaking countries too).

Though it’s actually uncertain where the first cuckoo clock was invented, it is in the Black Forest area in Germany where the cuckoo clock evolved and was further popularized.

The clock I selected was handmade in the Black Forest area and resembles a summer meadow chalet (funny enough, this style actually originated in Switzerland). But you can find them in all sorts of sceneries.

#7 Gin o’clock clock

This is one of the funniest clocks on the list for people who love drinks, specifically gin.

Technically it’s not really a travel wall clock, but since many travelers are also gin lovers, I figured the gin o’clock one would fit perfectly.

#8 Personalized map house clock

Did you like the idea of a personalized map clock? But was the heart a bit too lovey-dovey for you?

Then this clock in the shape of a home might be a better alternative.

Just like the heart, you can pick any location you would like to be the background of the clock. So you could go for your (or the recipient’s) hometown, favorite travel destination, or any other place in the world that means something to you (or the recipient if it’s a gift).

#9 Six-city world time clock

Six city times clock

Obviously, this list of travel-themed wall clocks wouldn’t be complete without the typical SEIKO six-city clock!

It’s the classic wall clock that shows the current times at six locations in the world; New York, London, Riyadh, Jakarta, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

It’s a cool clock for people who have friends around the world or for business travelers who need to know whether it’s an appropriate time to call one of their foreign clients.

And of course, it’s also just a cool wall clock for travelers in general.

#10 Word world map clock

Word world map clock

This metal clock is one of the best travel-themed wall clocks in so many ways.

First of all, it contains a map of the world. And if there is anything that travelers love, it’s a world map.

But what’s cool about this map is that it’s not just a regular world map, but one where the countries are made of words.

Second, you can completely personalize this clock with small clippers and photos, foreign currencies, post cards, and notes

#11 Beer cap clock

This is another unique clock for drinkers, a clock with holes for beer caps!

I know, it’s not really a travel wall clock.

But if you add beer caps from different international beer brands you can easily turn it into a travel-themed clock though. (You know, sometimes you just have to be a bit creative).

#12 Paris clock

Paris and France lovers, stop right here!

This clock is the perfect one for you. A unique typographic clock with the letters of your favorite city in the world.

What else could you wish for?

#13 New York Grand Central clock

There is a clock for any type of traveler.

Do you love New York?

Then you just found your perfect clock; the classic Grand Central terminal clock.

The clock is even double-sided like the original one, and it’s made from wrought iron to give it the authentic vintage look.

#14 Swiss Mondaine clock

You have to love the minimalistic style or love Switzerland in order to love this Mondaine clock.

#15 Time around the world clock

Time around the world

If you liked the idea of travel wall clocks that show the time in different places of the world, but the classic SEIKO clock was out of your budget, then this is a great alternative.

I’ll admit, it’s a bit of a challenge to understand this clock. And you need to have good eyes. But once you’ve figured it out, this clock will allow you to tell the time anywhere in the world at any time.

#16 Wall clock for boaters

travel wall clocks
Ship wheel clock

Are you a boater? Or do you love ships in any other way?

Then this is the clock for you! A wall clock in the shape of a ship wheel. And that’s not all.

The clock also plays different melodies (including Christmas songs) and the map in the middle splits every hour.

#17 Wooden world map clock

#18 Globe vinyl record clock

Globe vinyl clock

I love clocks that are made from old vinyl records. The vinyl simply gives a clock such a cool and retro style. So I hope you’ll like them too because you will find quite a few vinyl clocks on today’s list!

For example, this classic one with the world map.

Travel wall clocks for mid budgets

#19 Turtle-shaped clock

Did I warn you yet about the amount of world map clocks you were going to find on this list?


Well, here you have it. There will be a disproportional amount of world map clocks on today’s list.

And you know what. I am not even sorry.

Because world maps make awesome travel wall clocks, such as this 34cm (14inch) large wall clock.

#21 Vinyl record Tokyo clock

The next vinyl record clock on this list is one of the best travel wall clocks for people who love Japan. And more specifically, Tokyo.

It shows some of the most iconic Japanese sights, such as the Meiji Shrine, and the Sensō-ji Temple.

These vinyl record clocks are also available in many more cities, such as New York, Boston, Paris, and many more. So check out Amazon to find one of your (or the recipient’s) favorite cities.

#22 US flag clock

#23 Vinyl record world map clock

World map clock

If you’re sick of the vinyl-style clocks already, I’m sorry.

But this vinyl clock with the map of the world just had to be included because it contains two of my favorite decorations; vinyl and a world map. And since most travelers certainly share my love for the latter, I figured this clock had to be included!

#24 London-themed clock

London-themed clock

Do you want a more affordable England-themed clock? And more specifically, a London-themed one?
