Just because a clock says, ‘outdoor clock’ doesn’t mean that it is weatherproof or waterproof. Look for a seal and gaskets around all the seams. This would indicate it can stand up to the elements. Also, the labeling should be clear as to whether it is weatherproof. If it is not outdoor proofed, you will need to bring it into the house for the winter months, unless you are lucky enough to live where winter is simply a cool day.
