First Appearance

Update 0.8.0

Clocks are Redstone-related Items which were added in Update 0.8.0. They display the positions of the Sun and the Moon.


Clocks are primarily obtained through Crafting. After Update 1.0.4, Clocks can also be Traded for using Emeralds.



Clocks are used to measure time, which is helpful when the Player is not paying attention to the Sun, or when they are currently somewhere where the sky isn't visible.

Clocks only show their time when they are in the Hotbar, in the Players' hand, or as a "Wall Clock" when placed in an Item Frame.

Measuring Time

Clock Cycle

The Clock at various times of day

Time can be measured using Clocks by observing the upper part of it. When it is blue, it is day, whereas when it is black, it is night. The yellow end of the "hand" represents the Sun, and the silver end represents the Moon. Thus, the position of the hand can indicate the position of the Sun in the sky and how close it is to Night. The same is true of the Moon. Time cannot be measured in the Nether or The End, resulting in the Clock hands uncontrollably spinning when the Clock is used in those dimensions.

The Player can only Sleep in a Bed when the Clock is at least half-blue (on the right side) and half-black (on the left side). When the Player wakes up, the colors are reversed.
