Oxford Outdoor Clock with Thermometer 4.4 5 457 484
2 out of 3 Oxford Clocks... We purchased the first clock for our pool area and once it was delivered, it was too nice to put outside. We mounted it in our kitchen/great room area. However we still wanted something outside by the pool. We again ordered the Oxford Clock, it came and we put it up on the pool wall. We soon noticed that its humidity gauge was hardly ever moving and reflecting the humidity in the area. We called and asked if they had a replacement part for the humidity gauge, no such luck. They offered at that time to replace the whole clock but we thought that we would just live with it but it was a continuing sore spot. Finally I emailed the customer service folks and they responded the same day and again offered to replace it and I took them up on their offer. The next clock was just fine. These people make it very difficult not to shop with them. Consequently we just purchased the copper fire pit and converted it to propane and it is providing an excellent focal point in our backyard next to our pool. November 3, 2014
Impressive, better than expected The Oxford clock is a gorgeous addition in our back yard and looks beautiful in our pool area. November 15, 2014
Greatest clock ever Love it. Adds a touch of class to the outside living area. Have not seen any other outside clocks that can even come close to the beauty of this clock. November 5, 2014
Quality Clock The clock seems to be very well made and nicely appointed. Ao far it is working well with the temperature and humidity very accurate. November 4, 2014
DOES NOT WORK WELL This clock looks nice but has not worked well since it arrived. It requires batteries which I do not like for an outdoor clock. I purchases a 4 pack of new batteries for the clock after it arrived. The clock quit working shortly after I put the battery in it and hung outside. I was going to return the clock but thought that perhaps the battery was bad so I replaced the new battery with another new one. The clock worked for approx. one week before stopping again. I want to return it but am not willing to pack it up as I have already disgarded the original packing material. I now placed a 3rd new battery in the clock in hopes of it working however I have only had the clock for 3 - 4 weeks and I am now on battery #3. Maybe I just got a bad clock and others do not have this problem but I am hugely disappointed. This SHOULD NOT happed. May 2, 2014
Satisfied Clock is good quality, so far after one month, working well. Was waiting for sale to purchase. There really never is a true sale with frontgate, it's either free shipping or sale price, never both. So after a few months of free shipping or a percentage off, went ahead and purchased. September 9, 2014
IMPRESSIVE!....but This is a VERY eye-pleasing outdoor addition. We purchased it for our newly landscaped back yard, and it REALLY stands out! That having been said, I've had many of the same experiences as most: The clock hands don't "line up". I had to take the thing apart and reposition the hands "on the hour" so that the hour hand tracked properly. The clock wasn't accurate. I replaced the battery with a NEW one, and that seems to have cured the problem. I DO know that a "cold" battery (outdoors in winter, etc.) results in "slow running"...you just have to live with that in ALL these clocks. How long will the battery last? We'll see. The thermometer appears to work well, but it WILL read "high" in full sun, as will ALL thermometers. The hygrometer is a bit "suspect". I had another outdoor unit, and it was just as bizarre. As a GENERAL suggestion of humidity, it's OK. All in all, a nice product with a GREAT appearance. We'll see how durable it is with time. April 26, 2013
Useful and Beautiful This clock is even better than expected. A perfect addition to our outside pool area. So sophisticated and useful.. I just love Frontgate products October 12, 2014

Rust-proof

It says "weather-resistant". What about rust-resistant?

It does not rust.. The Copper color just wears out after a year or so. The Facia separates from the unit, and the thermometer, and the hygrometer stopped working after one year.

Answer: 
It is sealed pretty well. The only place it could rust would be where the hands come together and/or are connected to the mechanism., and that would only happen over a long period of time. I had many years from a clock similar to this before it got any rust.

Answer: 
I would assume it to be rust resistant since it appears to be plastic made to look like copper. I don't know how it would hold up if exposed to direct rain, but I think it would be okay on a covered porch like ours.

Answer: 
No, it is not rust-proof.

This type of material is generally quite susceptible to rusting in damp or humid climates.

Rust will quickly deverlope if this clock is scratched or chipped in any manner.

The inside bottom lip is the first place that you should expect rust to start developing if water can get behind your clock.

Rust can be slowed by annual respraying of a clear coat spray paint such as Rustoleum (either gloss or satin). With annual respraying, the closck should last five or more years.

Can't access it, but it is definitely not paper - it appears to be hard plastic. We've had ours hanging outside on a semi-covered porch for the past month and it's working great (in spite of all the rain we've been getting)!

After drilling the hole in the masonry we inserted a screw anchor for stability and strength. The clock is very secure and designed to sit on the screw and after pulling down on the clock a bit it locks into place.

Our outdoor wall is made of stucco, so I used a small drill bit to put a beginning hole in the wall, then hammered in a concrete nail with a head wide enough to fit the holder on the back of the clock. Worked very well.

How is the time set?

I currently have an outdoor clock like this that I would like to replace. It has a feature that allows it to "self-set" the time via radio frequency. How is the time set on this clock?

Obviously this clock should be able to be used indoor as well as outdoor & have much better longevity indoors. That is what I purchased it for & I hope it is effective indoors.

There is no reason you can't use this indoors. I think it probably goes without specifically saying that if it's durable outdoors it'd be durable indoors.

Answer: 
It could be because of the large size of the clock. I don't see why it wouldn't be just as great for inside as outside.
I would just make sure you have a good size wall to hang it on so it doesn't overwelm the wall or anything else displayed on the same wall.
