Apparently I Gots a Thing For Clocks! Here Are a Few Of My Analog Beauties. Status: Tick Tick Tick Tick...
Maybe it's because I have a very "live for now" attitude (which gets me into lots of problems BTW) but I do seem to have some weird thing for clocks.
This Seth Thomas doesn't currently work. It has a chord but needs some surgery
to get back on it's feet. I'd like to clean up the finish on the wood as well. Maybe
someday. It'll make a good lookin clock when all cleaned up. I only paid a buck for
This Bulova (?!) clock came from a little second hand store over by the Goodwill
and Value Village near my home. It was just $4. I know, you're thinking "Bulova...
wow, that's high end! I bet it works great." Nope. It can't keep time to save it's life.
It has a "faster-slower" dial on it. It's not quartz controlled. Can you believe that? It
still looks awesome.
This is a neat one. You see that nickle sized dot on top of it? That is a projector
where in the clock can project the time on the ceiling in the dark. I've never tried to
get it working but I bet it's pretty annoying!
