Windmill Clocks

A windmill clock is simply a clock that mimics the design of an American windmill. While designs vary, the "look" of the clock typically features the head, or blades, of the windmill. This type of clock is usually not digital, but instead has hour, minute, and/or second hands that sweep around the face of the clock and windmill blades in order to tell the time. They are beautiful clocks in varying sizes, sure to lend a type of rustic or country charm to any room. Below are windmill clocks for sale on Amazon and eBay.

When A Windmill Isn't A Windmill

To most of the world a windmill is a wind-powered mill used for milling grain. To "mill" grain means to grind it, crack it, or process it in some way in order to make it into flour, meal, or some other product.

Did you know...?
In "Don Quixote," the famous novel by author Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616), the title character of Don Quixote sees windmills that he mistakes to be "hulking giants" and attacks them.

In the United States, however, the word "windmill" refers to a type of wind-powered pump, not a grain mill. Windmills - the pump kind - are used to pump water out of the ground and into stock tanks, irrigation ditches, or anywhere else the water is needed. Windmills in the USA are so common all across the countryside that the term "windmill" is nearly synonymous with farm, ranch, or country life.

If you find a windmill clock on Amazon that you like but you're not ready to purchase it right away, you can always add it to your shopping cart so it will be easy to find later.

Important: Putting an item in your Amazon shopping cart or "Save for later" list does NOT reserve it! It just makes it easier to find if it's still in stock when you come back.
