My New Clock. Show Us Your Alarm Clock!

Oh my lucky stars! I came across this all brushed copper Haldane-brand vintage-inspired Huameile alarm clock…featured on My-Wall-Clock.com! 

Image

This clock’s case, dial and clock-works are all gold-tone copper. It has a 36-hour main spring, and trumpets a bright and vibrant bell alarm which is set by means of its top-center placed sub dial.

Image

The clock works are effortless to set and wind by the clearly stamped case-back which surrounds the positive-force knobs and keys that stand proudly from the clock’s rear.

Image

The clock itself is a solid-feeling 409 grams, while its dimensions are well-proportioned, which gives the clock presence…but is compact enough to fit nicely on an end table.

Image

The clock train is beautiful to look at, and shares the clock’s construction with its all copper design that is advertised to increase accuracy and durability. 

Image

This new clock of mine now has a home on the end table next to my reading chair, so my reading pleasure may be further enhanced by its gentle tick as its beautiful obsidian-black handset marches ratchet by ratchet around its brushed copper Roman numeral dial! 

Image

What a great privilege we in our hobby have to enjoy such treasures like this new arrival!

Show us your favorite alarm clock or end table clock that you may read by, eat by, play by…or simply sit by whittling away the time.

That looks really cool.

I picked up a Mystery Clock from eBay, but unfortunately it keeps terrible time (off by 20 minutes per hour). The advertisement for it  said it worked, and I guess they weren't lying, but very disappointed in how poorly it works. I've been too lazy to get it fixed, so it's currently purely a display piece.

Image

I also have a quartz desk clock from Royal Enamel (Etsy) with a retro design that I love. It has a smooth sweeping seconds hand, and keeps great time. It's a bit tough to read the time based on the dial design, but I still love it.

It's received plenty of positive comments from people who've seen it. FWIW, in person the white has more of a cream color to it, which makes it look even better in my opinion.

Nope  , I wake up to classical music in the morning on my local ABC classical radio station. Being bought into consciousness with a ringing bell isn’t something I would appreciate but each to his own :)

Nice…a Bose Wave Radio! An excellent product.

Marathon alarm clock, quartz, simple to operate, clear alarm and good glow for nighttime visibility. Actually bought It before I knew about Marathon as a brand, so was pleasantly surprised when I learned about them

It’s about 20 years old and has never missed a beat , gold circuitry helps .

Really nice! I have plans to get a Marathon myself. I was thinking about one of their military quartz watches.

I just looked at the Bose website and they still sell it in black or silver — $499.00.

Yeah, I can’t stand how the new DSP chips tune. I often choose my older radios to listen to…like my Superradio III or my CCradio Plus.

That mystery clock being off might be related to your power grid frequency. For instance Europe - 50hz, US - 60hz (or vice versa, I forgot).
