    Clock forum

    In case anyone missed it, a new forum in WUS started last November all about clocks:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/forumdisplay.php?f=385

    Have a look and contribute if you have anything of interest.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Thanks Marrick, I did not know. You mean we didn't handle clock questions well here? Maybe not the huge ones, but we have been ok with aircraft clocks and so on?

    Not sure - I think some members had asked for the forum and Ernie decided to give it a go. Its always a bit of a dilemma with overlapping forums and special interest groups.

    It is a good idea, I hope it will be able to sustain itself. As for this forum, I hope it stays combined vintage and pocketwatches. If it was to be split I think the pocketwatches section would show less traffic, and that's where my main interest is. I like vintage wristies as well so this forum is perfect.

    Note to self: Enough ranting.

    I'm glad to see it. Many people have heirloom clocks that need a little TLV and I've worked on quite a few just lately. I'll have to start taking before and after shots.

    By "clocks" I assume they mean things like mantel clocks, cuckoo clocks, etc, etc. Things without balance wheels. Airplane and travel clocks are really just large watches, for the most part, and they differ from what I consider a "Clock" in that "Clocks" aren't designed to handle motion well.

    Ah... then you should see Marrick's Government Post Office time stamp... it's one rugged clock designed to be smashed on a table many times an hour.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
