A well-made, common element, when found in an expected shape, form, or size can lend character to the decor of an otherwise classic or traditionally designed space. That is why I liked this Infinity Instruments Arcadian oversized clock.
At 31 inches, it holds the design weight of focal point pieces, such as a colorful mid-size painting. As such, the clock can be used above a couch or headboard, or lend some character to a restaurant or store, an office or cubicle, or it can be placed positioned with a grouping of hanging frames or mirrors. It would be suitable for use on a long wall, such as a high or cathedral ceiling side wall or staircase wall.
It is very well packaged, in an inner and outer box, with styrofoam padding and a dedicated full-size packing piece along the length of the clock to protect the golden hands. There is also a piece to hold the two hands apart during transit to avoid scratches. This is important because, despite its heavy metallic appearance, the minute hand seems delicate.
The patina is attractive and can be part of a masculine or feminine decor depending on what other decorative items are situated with it. The clock also could look great in steampunk, industrial or urban-themed office. Paired with some softer elements of the period, it could pass for a Victorian looking piece as well and have a more feminine look.
There is a long, well-secured bracketing hook to hang it on the top just off of one or two strong nails and alternate hardware options for hanging. It runs on one battery. It is not as heavy as it looks, so it is easy to move and hang yourself, but the nail should be as strong as you might use for a 2 to 3-foot painting or framed picture.
I especially like how the patina picks up the light, as the sun moves through the room, it takes on a lovely plum to copper glow on the patina.
No complaints, nice statement piece, be careful with the hands of the clock, they look heavy, but they are delicate.
