25 unique travel-themed wall clocks for travelers

Travel wall clocks for large budgets

#1 Vintage wall clock

Vintage clocks will never go out of style and are awesome gifts if you ask me!

This clock is inspired by the Da Vinci Age with a unique mixture of international clocks and other influences (such as astronomical pieces, grandfather mantel clocks, German cuckoo clocks, and an atomic countdown machine).

The artist, Alberto Batani, designed this old-fashioned wall clock with modern quartz movement as well, making it seem straight out of a steampunk fantasy!


#2 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 antique clock in London style is an awesome home decor item for you!

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


#3 World map acrylic wall clock

This beautiful acrylic world map clock will not only tell you the time, but it is also an eye-catching 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 the 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.


#4 Large colorful world map clock

If you liked the previous travel wall clock, but you’re looking for a bit more color, this is the right clock for you.


#5 New York Grand Central clock

There is a clock for any type of traveler.

Do you love NYC?

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 an authentic vintage look.


#6 Swiss Mondaine clock

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

But if you do, then this original Swiss railway clock is an awesome home decor item!


#7 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.


#8 Ultra-quiet clock

This is not just a quiet clock but an ultra-quiet clock so it wouldn’t be a distraction! It has a beautiful design and makes the perfect addition to any room.

It’s the ideal clock for people who are easily distracted by ticking clocks (like me!).


#9 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.


#10 Personalized map house clock

Do you want to go for a personalized clock?

Then this clock in the shape of a home is perfect!

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).


#11 Clock for backpackers

This is the perfect clock for backpackers!

It has a unique vinyl look and various highlights from across the world such as the Eiffel Tower and the Cristo statue from Brazil.

It’s handmade and non-ticking as well. It even has a built-in hanger.

I’d say it’s a nice gift for those adventurous friends of yours!


#12 Six-city world time 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.


#13 Colorful wooden world map

This clock has an elegant and simple design. It’s perfect if you’re looking to add a bit of travel and color to the room without it taking up too much space.

It’s handmade and has unique geometric art with mirror indexes that effortlessly combine art and function in a décor.


#14 Beer cap clock

This is a fun 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).


#15 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?


#16 Time around the world clock

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.


#17 Wooden world map clock

For classic wall clocks for travelers, anything with a world map will do. And one cool example of that is this wooden clock. For more unique designs, check out Etsy.


#18 Globe vinyl record 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.


#19 Wall clock with two world maps

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

No?

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.

World maps make awesome travel wall clocks, such as this cute world map one.

It’s perfect for nature lovers.


#21 Vinyl record Tokyo clock

This 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

Are you looking for unique wall clocks for travel lovers who love the US?

Or for people from the US?

Then this clock with the US flag is a great option.

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

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

Then this clock is the one you are looking for!

It contains some of the most classic London sights, such as Big Ben, double-decker buses, and a telephone booth.
