I even tried counting the ticks for an hour, but I always ended up asleep. I think that love of old clocks has always been with me. I naturally was drawn towards clocks the older I got and now enjoy traveling to watch and clock shows with friends looking for unique timepieces to offer here. In an electronic age these clocks are a mechanical marvel and serve as conversation pieces no matter who is visiting. Here are some specifics about this clock:
