Hi all. For some reason I've recently gotten it into my head that it would be cool to have a mechanical clock, with a moon phase, in my office. I'm looking for something old and classy with an especially nice moon face, but small enough to fit on a shelf instead of hanging on the wall (so, less than 12" high).
Searching on ebay I've found a fair number of Warmink clocks that seem to fit the bill, like this one: VINTAGE BRACKET MANTLE SHELF CLOCK MOONPHASE WARMINK WUBA 8 day stiking | eBay, and the price seems very doable.
But of course, I have absolutely no idea what I'm getting into. :) Is this a good choice of brand? What should I look out for in a purchase? How hard is it to keep these running? Will it be crazy loud in my (very) small office? Any and all advice is much appreciated!
