This clock is classic Uttermost: a statement worthy piece that commands attention. It's big, but not too big. It's the right mix between traditional and modern. It has some weathering but not too much, where it looks intentional (I don't like that overdone intentional look). I love the large face, as it makes the time easy to read, and the fact that the face is white brightens up the gray base. I also like that this clock is a different shape than traditional mantle clocks. That's one of the things that drew me towards it. Make sure and measure carefully--it is large. You will get every penny of your money's worth in looks, value, and style out of this one. I love this piece, and even my husband, who could take or leave home decor, noticed this clock and commented on how "nice looking" it is!
