Expert-level librarian villagers have a 33.3% (1⁄3) chance to sell a single clock for 4 emeralds as part of their trades.[Bedrock Edition only]
Expert-level librarian villagers have a 50% (1⁄2) chance to sell a clock for 5 emeralds.[Java Edition only]
The clock dial consists of two halves, a day side and a night side. The dial spins clockwise slowly to indicate the time of day, corresponding to the sun or moon's actual position in the sky. The player is able to sleep a few seconds after the clock shows exactly dusk.
The dial always shows the current in-game time when in the Overworld, regardless of where it appears. This includes a player's hand, an inventory slot, a crafting grid, an item frame, or even as a dropped item. For a clock to be mounted on a wall, an item frame is required.
Piglins are attracted to clocks and run toward any clock on the ground, and inspect it for 6 to 8 seconds before putting it in their inventory.

Texture generation prior to Java Edition 13w02a
To generate its appearances, the clock combined 2 textures, one being the actual clock, and the other being the dial.
This texture combination allowed for clocks to be very precise, having 228 visually distinct frames. The animated texture approach, used in 1.5 onwards, is far less precise, with only 64 different frames.
- In Java Edition, a clock can be viewed under the item statistics page as long as one obtained a clock at some point. It can also be viewed in recipe book if the recipe for it has been unlocked.
- In Java Edition, the default resource pack for the clock contains 64 individual frames, each frame lasting about 18.75 seconds in real time (375 ticks) (1350 seconds (22 minutes, 30 seconds) in Minecraft time).
- When the time of day changes suddenly, such as after sleeping or when
/timeis used, the clock dial spins rapidly to catch up.
- Although clocks do not function in the Nether or the End, the actual daylight cycle does continue.
