The hands move around indicating the hours, minutes and seconds; analog wall clocks come in different designs and sizes. Flip clocks have an analog mechanism but use a digital display.

These types of clocks are different from analog clocks in that they do not express time using the position of rotating hands but do so digitally using a numeric representation of time. There are two numeric display formats that are commonly used on digital clocks: the 24-hour notation ranging from 0-23 and the 12-hour notation with AM/PM indicators. Most digital clocks are driven electronically, they use LCD, LED, VFD, cathode ray tubes, nixie tube rays and other display technologies to displays numerals. Newer digital clocks reset themselves based on radio or internet time servers that are tuned to national atomic clocks, making it not necessary to set time after every power failure or battery changing.
