Clocks work much the same way as compasses, in the sense that both of them are used for determining data about the player's area. The clock displays the sun and the moon's position relative to the horizon, allowing the player to know the time even when not in view of the sun. It shows you the places of the sun and moon when you are holding it in your hand, hotbar or inventory.
- You can place it on walls by putting it in a frame.
- Even if you don't craft the clock, it displays correct time in the crafting grid.
- After completing 100 day-and-night cycles you are awarded a miniature clock wristwatch for your Xbox Live avatar to wear.
