Shoplet GLO Aluminium Wall Clock - Purple

I've been looking for a clock for a while now to replace our current one (the above) in the living room. I still love it but it's really hard to read the time. An opportunity came up from Shoplet, who offered us a GLO Aluminium Wall Clock to review. Could this be our new clock?

A simple yet modern wall clock with 5 colours to choose from, GLO Aluminium Wall Clock (£10.74 excluding VAT) is a bit easier for Abby to read, but hubby isn't very keen as it isn't as stylish as our original clock, which to be fair is more for decoration purpose than reading the time. I'm quite happy to keep it on our wall if it wasn't for the Seconds hand ticking noise. Our original clock doesn't have a Seconds hand so we are used to a quiet living room. So quiet that I can sometimes hear the imaginative ticking sound from our clock (I know I'm not going crazy *ehem*)! As soon as we put the GLO clock up, it is comparatively loud to ours. 4 years without hearing a ticking sound has made our ears so sensitive it's actually bothering us and we had no choice but to take it down after a week.

I think it's sturdy with a nice aluminium finish, and has a quirky range of colours (Yellow, Orange, Pink, Purple and Green) that would suit a lot of people. Perhaps if it doesn't have a Seconds hand it would have been our next clock.

I'll have to make sure that our next clock doesn't have a Seconds hand...
