Joseph Sallas Square Clock
This clock is made of a photograph of a beautiful clock face that was taken from a grandfather clock. In Europe, they call grandfather clocks Longcase clocks. This one is and antique from France. It is square because it is made up of the entire photograph–the face as well as the rusted metal square surrounding it. It is my new favorite. I think it unique and beautiful. I love the handwritten wording on the face.

- Additional information
I have been enjoying expanding our selection of square clocks because they, let’s face it, they are “fresher”! This one mixes old and new…and old clock face shown in a new way!
CUSTOMIZATION: We have the largest selection of custom wall clocks in the world. This wall clock, like most of our clocks can be customized with a name, date, logo, or favorite saying.
CLOCK FACES: Our faces are mostly printed. Some are photographs of antique clocks we LOVED. They look amazing, but they are PRINTED. I have an artist that will paint a clock by hand, but it will take 3 months and cost $1500 for a 30”.
CLOCK BACKS: Our clock backs are made of MDF (medium density fiberboard). MDF is a smooth engineered wood that does not warp and provides a great backdrop for our clocks. Many manufacturers choose to use a thinner material—1/8 inch or ¼ inch MDF wood. Instead, we have chosen to spend the extra money to use a thicker ½ inch material. It just FEELS like quality—not light flimsy wood. It is hefty and hearty.
MECHANISMS: Our mechanisms are quarts, high torque and most are quiet, sweep mechanisms (meaning they don’t have a ticking sound). It is important to us that you have a clock that will last a lifetime. Because of this, we offer a lifetime warranty of your mechanism. If it breaks within 1 year, we will send you a new mechanism at no cost. After one year, you will pay shipping and handling.
CLOCK HANDS: Our clock hands are light weight. They are NOT heavy duty metal. It is NOT because we are trying to be chintzy. Clock hands, especially on the large wall clocks, MUST be light weight or the mechanism could not run them. The battery would die every few months. The next stronger mechanism choice is what is called a tower clock. Tower clocks have HUGE mechanisms that are 12” x 12” x 6”. Not only are the huge, they cost thousands of dollars. Please understand that your light hands are light for a reason.
VARIETY OF SIZES: One of the most unique things about our company is that we have wall clocks to fit any space. If you need a small 10” clock, we have it. If you need a 5 foot clock, we have that too (and lots of sizes in between. Here is a list of our open faced clock sizes: 10”, 12”, 15”, 18”, 24”, 30”, 36”, 48”, and 60”)!
CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE: We have nine wall clock sizes to choose from…in order to choose the right size, PLEASE make a newspaper cut out of the size you think you need. Cut it into a circle or square (depending on which you want to order) and tape the paper to your wall where you want to place it. This will give you a visual of how it will look.
COST: We realize our clocks cost more than the ones you can get at the big box stores. The main reason is that these clocks are not mass produced. We make our time pieces one at a time specifically for you and your space. Let’s say you need a 36” spice orange clock. Something so specific may be the perfect piece to set off your dining room, but it is not something the general population needs. So, you can’t find it anywhere else besides our website. Making “one-offs” is not very cost effective for us, but we do it because we want to offer a huge selection, and making them “on demand” is the best way to accomplish that.
