How to use clocks in Minecraft

Survival Mode in Minecraft can make the difference between safety or a long night of fighting with hostile mobs. Clocks are able to account for this.

Expert-level librarian villager are capable of selling clocks but it is much easier to make a clock. Four gold ingots are required and one piece redstone dust. After the item is made, players can just hang on to it and it will work automatically.

Minecraft clocks keep track of time, position of sun and moon. However, players must be able to read the clock's face.

Minecraft: What do the symbols on a clock mean?

Clocks in Minecraft will gradually rotate with time as the world grows. Clocks keep track both the sun's position and that of the moon. The sun and moon symbols signify different times of the day.

The clock operates automatically, and Minecraft players don't have to do anything other than read it. The clock will only work correctly in the Overworld. It will fluctuate in the End and Nether.

There are other uses for clocks in Minecraft. They are particularly attractive to the Nether's piglins. Because piglins are fond of gold and golden objects they will take any clock that is thrown to them. After looking at it for a while, the piglins place the object into their inventory and continue their business.

Clocks can be used as decorative pieces or in conjunction with other items. Minecraft players can create a clock with a daylight detector block, a bell and even a working clock that ringes based on night and day.
