    Recommendations or suggestions for an outdoor clock?

    I'm looking for a weatherproof medium sized clock that can be placed on our siding and easily read from the pool (maybe 10-20 feet away). I had purchased a clock from Target last year that was advertised as "outdoor" but it created a rust spot on the siding with the first rain. Thank you for any recommendations or suggestions.

    I bought a clock a couple of years ago that has been great in my poolhouse, but I suspect it wouldn't hold up as well unprotected.

    I've seen some in catalogs that have a clay or terra cotta face that might be more weatherproof.

    Bought one from Wal-Mart last year. It is about 18" in diameter with Roman numerals and a thermometer at the six o'clock position. It's made of ceramic material and has held up thus far. Runs on a AA battery. Lithium batteries are best if it freezes out your way since the alkaline ones don't like it when it drops below 32. Anyway, the clock was only like $17.

    We had a sun dial once that was fun, if you don't need the EXACT time. Or need to tell time when it is shady!

    We have the Walmart one that 257WbyMag referred to. It's been up for 3 years now. I'm amazed that it still works, as it just has a cheapo Made-In-China movement, but it still keeps excellent time. It is protected from most rain by the overhang on the pool house, so that probably helps it live.
