On New Year's Eve millions of us will be watching the hands on the clock tick towards midnight, ready to welcome 2019 and celebrate the first minutes of a brand-new year.
To ensure your countdown sets the tone for the year ahead, we've compiled our top ten clocks to help you count down to 2019 in style!
Whether it's a large wall clock to create the focal point of a NYE house party, or the all-essential kitchen clock to make sure you don't miss any of the action; discover the ten best Newgate clocks to countdown to the New Year in style!
The Large Wall Clock
Like many you might be choosing to celebrate New Year at home this year. If so, make sure any party guests have somewhere to congregate for the countdown with a large wall clock.
One of our most iconic designs, the Putney is a big wall clock that’s also big on style. Count down to the New Year with the help of its bold dial and larger-than-life red hands.
Or, watch the minutes glide by with the help of our Brixton wall clock. A large clock with a silent-sweep movement, the Brixton’s contrasting red and green hands move without the tick-step, meaning it's quieter than most large wall clocks, but still perfect for that all-important NYE countdown!
The Kitchen Clock
If you’re seeing in the New Year with a house party, then the kitchen (and its promise of drinks and nibbles!) is the room that guests will always gravitate towards. Make sure no-one misses that vital countdown by ensuring your kitchen clock is up to the task!
Mr Edwards is a kitchen clock well worthy of your guest’s gaze. A radial brass case combines with a mid-Century modern dial in statement petrol blue.
Or, if you prefer a classic kitchen clock to watch the last of 2018 tick past, then the traditional Cookhouse kitchen clock with fool’s gold bezel and classic black or white case will hit the spot. Available in 23cm or 35cm diameter there’s a size to suit, no matter how much wall-space you have to play with.
The Modern Clock
A modern clock is the perfect way to see in a brand-new year. Bright, fun and colourful, the silicone-coated Echo wall clock is made for New Year’s partying!
Opt for this modern wall clock in vibrant ‘Fire Engine Red’ or happy-go-lucky ‘Cheeky Yellow’. Or, add a modern clock to your desk or bedside with our brightly-coloured Echo alarm clock in make-the-boys-wink 'Marshmallow Pink'.
The Oversized Wall Clock
There’ll be no chance of missing the New Year's countdown with an oversized wall clock taking centre-stage. Our extra-large wall clocks include statement timepieces to form the focal point of your New Year celebrations.
Opt for an oversized wall clock like our 60cm diameter Giant Electric for maximum impact or create a contemporary statement with our extra-large Mr Clarke wall clock.
The Decorative Wall Clock
A wall clock isn’t just about function, it’s also another way to stamp your individual style on your home. A decorative wall clock will add the finishing touch to a room; balancing your decor by adding height to a room and providing a natural place for the eye to come to a rest.
The Westhampton is a decorative wall clock designed to complement both modern and traditional interiors. Available in a carefully curated palette of soft greys, whites and golds, its neutral colours will add decorative appeal long beyond the New Year countdown.
The Roman Numeral Clock
Welcoming a brand-new year doesn’t mean you can’t still keep things classic with a Roman numeral clock, of course.
A Roman dial wall clock, like our gloss black Battersby station clock, will make a timeless addition to your interior, complementing a wide variety of interior styles.
Or, combine a traditional Roman numeral clock with contemporary styling in our matt grey Italian wall clock.
The Retro Clock
While we’re welcoming in the future with the start of a fresh new year, the New Year is also a great time to pay homage to times gone by. Our vintage and retro clocks celebrate the design classics of the mid-Century, re-mastered by Newgate into a contemporary and bang-up-to-date clock collection.
A retro wall clock that’s guaranteed to create a talking point; our Pluto starburst clock makes a bold statement with its striking real-wood sunrays and unapologetically vintage styling.
The Minimalist Clock
After the over-indulgences of Christmas, the New Year is often embraced as a time to simplify, and a minimalist clock is the ideal timepiece to bid farewell to Christmas excess and welcome in a calm and collected New Year.
Keep things simple with the graphic dial and clean lines of our minimalist wall clock collection, Mr Clarke. The pared back Scandi style and subtracted design of this minimalist clock collection will be a daily reminder to edit and streamline in all areas of your life.
The Copper Clock
It may soon be 2019, but the trend for copper homeware shows no signs of waning! Add a new dimension to the trend by opting for a copper clock with contrasting petrol-blue or black dial.
The Master Edwards combines a 7cm deep copper clock case with a design-led petrol blue dial. Its compact 30cm diameter size means you can create a bold look, even with limited space.
If you have more room to play with, then the Chrysler is a copper clock with attitude. A staunchly retro dial in deepest black makes the radial copper case sing.
The Alarm Clock
If the New Year will see you setting resolutions to find more time for the things that are important to you, then get ahead of the game with an analog alarm clock to keep you on track. While your iPhone alarm can be easily snoozed, the hammer-and-bell action of a twin-bell alarm clock is much harder to ignore!
Go classic with the heritage colours of our Brick Lane alarm clock or keep things contemporary with the modern styling of our Charlie Bell alarm clock.
