Default silent analog wall clock, no ticks?

I am looking for a large wall clock (non digital but with sweeping hand). Tick noise is very bothersome when I tried to listen to high fidelity music.

Anyone know where I can buy a large wall clock (about 2 feet in diameter), that is silent (likely will be a sweeping second hand not the stop-go type).

thanks,

gychang

In the spirit of DIY, try this site:

They have sweep second hand movements that you can install in an el-cheapo clock case.
Lots of other DIY clock parts are there to roll-your-own clock.

Can't beat the old fashioned synchronus motor clock. Silent running and accurate.

Many modern quartz movement analogue clocks (running off a 1.5V battery) are silent. The second hand moves smoothly. Instead of a stepper motor rotating half a turn once per second, they rotate continuously.
