A clock is a device for measuring time, typically larger and intended for public or household display, while a watch is a small timepiece worn on the wrist or carried.
Clock vs. Watch

Key Differences

Clocks are generally stationary devices that display the time and are often found in homes, public places, or workplaces. They range in size from small desk clocks to large tower clocks. Clocks serve as a communal reference point for time, often designed to be read from a distance, and can include features like striking the hours or displaying astronomical information.

Watches, on the other hand, are personal timepieces designed to be worn or carried. A watch is often a reflection of personal style and can vary from simple, functional pieces to elaborate, luxury items. Watches are intimate companions, marking time for individuals, and are portable, keeping pace with a person’s movements throughout the day.

The distinction in form factor is significant; clocks command presence in a room or space, often used as a decorative element in addition to their functional purpose. The design of a clock can be a statement piece, with grandiose or intricate appearances.

In contrast, watches can be a form of self-expression and are frequently chosen to make a personal statement or to serve a specific function, like sports or diving watches, which are designed to withstand certain environments.

Clock

A machine for measuring time, indicating the hour and other divisions; in ordinary mechanical clocks for domestic or office use the time is indicated on a typically circular face or dial plate containing two hands, pointing to numbers engraved on the periphery of the face, thus showing the hours and minutes. The works of a mechanical clock are moved by a weight or a spring, and it is often so constructed as to tell the hour by the stroke of a hammer on a bell. In electrical or electronic clocks, the time may be indicated, as on a mechanical clock, by hands, but may also be indicated by direct digital readout, with the hours and minutes in normal Arabic numerals. The readout using hands is often called analog to distinguish it from the digital readout. Some clocks also indicate the seconds. Clocks are not adapted, like the watch, to be carried on the person. Specialized clocks, such as atomic clocks, may be constructed on different principles, and may have a very high precision for use in scientific observations.
