When you choose to place a clock in the bathroom the next question is what kind of clock should you get? Since the bathroom is exposed to water, a battery powered clock is the way to go. This is because electrically powered clocks will not be affected by water. Secondly, a digital wall clock is easier and quicker to read. This means that as the wall clock in your bathroom is mostly for practical rather than aesthetic value a digital clock is probably a better option.
