    You mention quartz movement, does that imply ticking vs sweeping second hand?

    I assumed all these for sponsored/paid advertising. Is there a chance some of the locations are just buying them? I wouldn’t think so for public locations, definitely not at the US Open or all around JFK, but maybe something like the AP clock i posted form Singapore lounge?

    Below is a pic from the new kitchen at Eleven Madison Park, AP looking minty

    The answer to that question is that it is both. Most of the time, a special time synchronized master/slave clock system are installed in public spaces like hospitals, airports, etc.. Major corporations sometimes sponsor the products if it is in a high traffic area, e.g. airports. I recall a time when I was working on a building project back in the 1990s, a developer insisted that he must have Raymond Weil and it was bloody hard to find what he wanted. Wish he just said he wanted a Rolex. LOL.

    My understanding is that many don't have a second hand - avoiding the whole sweeping hand controversy.

    Ha! Yeah, I still do. I went looking for the Sub again, but no luck this time. Then again, I'd likely have to ask the fiancé first. Not because of the expense, that's on me, but I'm not sure she'll let me get away with hanging one in the house. Wall of the garage, maybe.

    That makes sense. I would vote no second hand over a quartz/ticking second hand on a Rolex or equivalent

    Nice! What are ballpark dimensions? Second hand sweep or tick? Any lume? Very cool
