The Swarovski Clocks

While Swarovski may be best known for its crystal figurines, they also make functional items as well. Some of the most useful are the Swarovski Clocks.

Swarovski issued time pieces of elegance in the Silver Crystal line; some of the oldest clocks were produced from 1987 through 1992.

  • Swarovski Athena Clock
  • Belle Époque Clock
  • Colosseum Clock (only available in the European market); in addition a 'special edition' had a religious motif on it
  • El Dorado Clock (only available in the European market)
  • Napoleon Clock
  • Polar Star Clock

Worth mentioning also is the Solaris Clock, 1998-2004 originally in the Silver Crystal line & later moved to Crystal Home Accessories in 2002.

These clocks were available, with the exception of the Solaris, in 2 different metal finishes in gold and rhodium. They were also available with 3 different faces, allowing you to choose one of 3 styles:

  • Alarm face - a simple face with roman numerals
  • Date face - had numbers 1-31 instead of the “3” on the face to indicate the day of the month
  • Moon Dial face - also had roman numerals, but other dials on the face also indicated the phase of the moon.

Each clock had ‘Swarovski’ printed across the face.

Seiko precision clock movements were used in what was then known as the Selection product line (now Home Interiors) and included:

  • Enigma Carriage Clock: 1992 – 1998 Limited Edition of 6450 units with a removable base
  • Helios Table Clock: 1992 – 2004 Roman numerals are displayed in the crystal component & of note is the fact that the number four on this clock is a III rather than IV.
  • Curacao Table Clock: 1995 – 2000 clear crystal with a beautiful a blue natural Sodalith stone displayed on the front of it.
  • Providence Table Clock: 1998 – 2003 this was a numbered edition & the most expensive clock, retailing at $850.
  • Allegra Pendulum Clock: 1999 – 2004 numbered pendulum clock, done in an art deco style.
  • Op Art Clock: 2002 – 2004 conical crystal with classic long facets; funky abstract décor without any numbers on the clock face & two drop-shaped metal front feet. The Artist's signature, Anna Gili, is engraved on the back of the clock. This issue had different product numbers assigned for pieces issued in the U.S.A. & Europe.

Swarovski made a single clock in the Daniel Swarovski Home Accessories product line, the Cadence Table Clock, from 2002 – 2005. This clock has the Daniel Swarovski logo on it.

Swarovski also issued a few non-functioning clocks in the Crystal Moments (formerly Crystal Memories) product line:
an Alarm Clock 1998 – 2002 and Mantle Clock: 1996 – 2001
Functioning clocks in the Crystal Moments product line were part of the 'Secrets' theme group & they opened, hiding a 'secret clock' inside:

  • Book Clock : 1999 – 2003
  • Gift Clock: 1997 – 2004
  • Globe Clock: 1997 – 2004
  • Handbag Clock: 1997 – 2004

A Kris Bear functioning Clock in this line was also issued from 1997 – 2002. Kris wears a green & red ribbon.

  1. A very interesting and detailed article.
    As always lots of great information.

    Even those horrible Kris Bears had to get in on the clocks!

  2. I got a Kris Bear clock - its cute :D

  3. I am not to keen on the Swarovski clocks or watches.

  4. I love the older clocks that were produced under the Silver Crystal product range in the late 80's and early 90's, my favorite being the Belle Epoch. The Curacao clock is also stunning!
