It won’t cost you anything extra.
Surely you can’t have a man cave without a character filled clock to be featured prominently above the bar. While it takes all sorts of styles to fit out a room like this, your clock is a feature piece that needs careful consideration. Some prefer a man cave with an automobile theme, others prefer a pool/games room style while gamer man caves are also on the rise.
There’s a clock for every occasion and we’ve found some of the best custom or unique designs that would suit any cool hideaway or bar. Etsy is one of the greatest marketplaces around for custom or personalised products that ooze quality. Amazon can also provide some cool products but when it comes to man cave clocks, the former is an ideal place to find this type of product.
#1 - Customised Rustic Wooden Clock
👍 4 Sizes to Choose From
👍 3 Custom Lines of text
👍 Quartz movement
👎 Unknown wood Type
Your home bar has become your retreat that you turn to whenever the boys come around for a quiet beer. But they need to know when to leave also! This is why you require a clock above your bar in the style of the room you dedicate for drinking. If your bar is decked out in a rustic style design, then a rustic looking clock is going to fit in with the surroundings.
We’ve found this trendy, yet rustic wooden clock that you can customize to suit your room atmosphere. I love handmade items as I know the craftsmanship is going to be more detailed and accurate. I also really like timber products, and this clock ticks that box. What I’m not too sure about is the type of timber used. Although they suggest it’s made from rustic wood, I’m sure some would like to know the actual type of wood used.
However, the design works well and looks cool. Here’s some of the features:
- You’ll have the choice of 4 different sizes to choose from with the smallest being 12-inch diameter and the largest being 30-inch diameter. If you’ve ever seen clocks 30-inch in diameter, you’ll know that they can make a great feature, but they do need to be placed in a room that works for this size.
- See the 3 lines of text in the center of the clock? This can be customized to your liking which makes it an awesome gift for somebody.
- The clock itself is pre-assembled before slotting into the timber surrounds. It’s a Quartz movement which I’m sure you’ll appreciate great quality. To complement the clock background, you’ll find black decorative serpentine clock hands.
You’ll also find hanging the clock is simple as it comes with a saw-tooth hanger on the rear. It may be too good for your garden shed but would suit any indoor feature room. This is a reasonably priced clock that may just suit your style.
#2 - Custom Wooden 'ManCave' Clock
👍 Awesome Whiskey Barrel Clock Face
👍 19-Inch Diameter
👍 Handmade with Quartz Movement
👍 Ideal Gift
👎 USA Shipping Only
Oh yes, have we found the perfect man cave clock for your place of solitude. It’s right in line with everything you could envisage in a manly retreat and your mates will be so envious. They will all want to know where you found this beauty. If I was you, I wouldn’t tell them. Keep this secret man cave clock to yourself, you don’t want your competitors copying you.
You’ll pay a little more for this 19-inch clock which you’ll notice has similarities to a barrel. Yep, the clock face is a designed as a replica whiskey barrel top. Made from USA real wood, you’ll enjoy the distressed and weathered look that makes this clock look well used as if it has a story of the past. It would look perfect above your Scotch Whiskey decanter.
Features included in this clock are:
- Fully handmade apart from the Quartz movement, which is added to the clock towards completion. I really love the old weathered tree image in the barrel clock face which gives an authentic feel.
- You will receive a custom product as the top line of text can be personalized to whatever writing you prefer. Preferably a first name or nick-name in would be the logical replacement in this location but you could have a club or organization name.
- Ideal as a gift for the owner of a man-cave or pool room. If someone you know loves their scotch or Irish Whiskey, then they’ll appreciate the barrel top design this offers.
- Comes as a standard 19-inch diameter clock face and uses 2xAA batteries.
- Like the above clock, it comes with serpentine style clock hands which offers a little class to the timepiece.
If you want this clock as a gift for somebody or even for yourself, make sure you live in the USA. Unfortunately for those outside the USA, they don’t offer shipping to other countries due to restrictions. I’ve seen this before however and it can change. So, just to be sure, click the ‘Check it Out’ button and see if the shipping details have changed.
#3 - Beer Thirty Personalized Bar Clock
👍 5 o’Clock Somewhere in the world
👍 4 Sizes to Choose from
👍 Custom Design
The insinuation means everything with this awesome clock made specifically to sit behind your home bar. Giving the indication that it’s 5 O’Clock somewhere in the world, it’s always time for a fine beer. You’ll receive questions from all sorts as to why is always 5 O’Clock. Many will already understand and get the joke. Once explained to others, they’ll appreciate your humor.
Like most of these clocks, the timepiece is made with Quartz movement, so you know it’s quality. The design itself is unique in appearance with your favorite brew as the centerpiece. Here’s what other features we like with this clock:
- You’ll have the option of 5 various sizes ranging from 10-inch diameter to 23-inch diameter. I like having this choice as it allows for smaller spaces to enjoy the design just as much as larger man caves do.
- Like all good custom clocks, you’ll have the option to add your own customized wording. This is always a feature that makes the item stand out and indicate that it’s a personal masterpiece.
- The polished process of making this clock is meticulous. Made with a laser-cut 1/4 -inch think MDF panel, the inks used are fade resistant and comes with a UV coating, meaning it will last for many years.
My preference is always a clock that is aged in someway to make it look like it wasn’t bought yesterday. That’s exactly what has been achieved here.
There’s also many great reviews for this clock stating that the seller is patient and wants to get the design as correct as you do. You will have a great experience buying from these guys.
#4 - It’s Always WINE o'clock Bar Clock
👍 No Frame or Cover Required
👍 Quartz Movement
👍 Metal Clock Hands
👍 No Ticking Noise
👎 Printed Image, NOT Authentic
Awesome printed clock but would be more authentic if it was made of wood. It looks like wood in the image and the barrel tap on the front also looks real. However, this is an open face clock with printed image on the front. I guess this the reason for the rating for this clock being lower than the others.
That all said, the ratings are not too bad and there’s a lot of happy customers. It’s certainly not my preference but with the range of designs available, there’s plenty of choice. This is just one of there designs which gives the impression of a wine barrel end with tap. It’s very effective and would suit many a home bar.
Here’s the features you’ll find with this clock:
- There’s no cover of frame needed on this clock. It’s a rigid open face which is 10 ½ inches in diameter. The thickness is 1/8 inch
- It comes with Quartz movement so it’s a quality timepiece.
- The clock hands are made from metal instead of plastic which is a nice touch
- You won’t find a ticking noise with this clock which is handy if you’re placing this in a bedroom.
You will find it has a Masonite backing which has been laser cut. The high-resolution image is then placed on the base and laminated. This company promote vivid colours and sharp pictures so expect a great print.
As each clock is made to order, the processing time is 3-5 working day before it gets delivered.

Looking more like it would fit right at home on the Happy Days set, this neon clock will stand out and make a huge statement in the desired room that you’ve set aside. It’s a solid timepiece with neon surrounds giving a glow from a retro era. This was all the rage in the 1960’s but this clock is much more durable than what was built then.
The moulded resin housing of the clock is finished with high polished chrome making it a suit a pool room with retro features such as a jukebox. The clock face has silk-screen bold printed numbers making them easy to read. This is covered with a protective glass lens keeping the insides secure from bugs or in my case, children’s fingers!

- You’ll find two hand blown real glass neon rings of which the colours complement the style and design of the clock face theme itself.
With high-grade neon power supplies, your neon bars will last a long time. You’ll find the 18.75-inch diameter is large enough as the depth of the clock is quite deep at 5.5-inches. This gives the clock a chunky feel which can work in many rooms.
