The clock dial has 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 dial can be read in a player's hand, placed in an inventory or crafting grid, in an item frame, and even as a dropped item.
Piglins are attracted to clocks and run toward any clock on the ground, and inspect for 6 to 8 seconds before putting it in their inventory.

- The clock is perhaps most useful while a player is underground since there is no real way to tell the time while a player is underground, other than, of course, using a clock.
- Like compasses, clocks work in a Crafting Table which means that a player doesn't have to craft a clock to see the time.
- If sleeping with a clock in your hand, upon waking, or the time is changed through the commands, the clock dial will spin rapidly to catch up with the current time.
- Although clocks do not function in the Nether or the End, the actual daylight cycle still continues.
- In Java Edition, a clock can be viewed under the item statistics page as long as one has obtained a clock at some point. It is also viewable in the Recipe Book as long as the recipe for it has been unlocked.
