I purchased this clock to go on my fireplace mantle. It matches the red in my decor and is a really pretty addition to the mantle. The clock has a soft ticking sound and will not bother you when sleeping or tv viewing. Because the face of the clock is red and the numbers gold, it isn't as easy to see as some with a white or lighter face. Still, a good purchase because of it's beauty and I am happy with it.
Beautiful clock for the price. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a shelf clock.
Perfect for my desk or on one of my book shelves....at a distance the soft gold numbers are harder to see but maybe new glasses would help
Love this clock...looks great in my living room
