The Garage Clock: For the Perfect Garage, Workshop, or Man Cave

Updated on September 27, 2011

Decorative and Functional Clocks for the Garage

Whether you just want to be able to keep track of time or need the perfect design accent, a garage clock can be the perfect item. You can find these shop clocks in a variety of designs, some are retro items that appeal to enthusiasts and collectors alike, others are vintage looking designs, while several are more modern with a unique automotive motif.

You'll find a variety of garage clocks on this page and one is certain to be the perfect fit for your room, shop, or garage.

A Few Reminders

When choosing one of these clocks, check to see if it runs with AC power, batteries, or both. Certainly batteries free you up from having to mount it near an outlet, but of course batteries have to be replaced periodically and can result in an incorrect reading if they die unexpectedly. AC power is reliable until the power goes out. Having the AC power with battery back up can be a good option.

If you don't find the one you want on this page, then you can of course make your own. Finding a sign, plate, or something similar that sports a design you like can allow you to create your own design. Clock movement kits with the hands and numerals included can be purchase for under $15 or so online. With just a drill and small screwdriver you can get just the look you want.

      I am so in love with these garage clocks. Not sure my husband's mancave is in the garage, but we could definitely still use one of those. Maybe in the basement. Fun, fun products. :D
