I just arrived home from Mt. Olympus Clock Shop with my new vintage 1981 Hamilton Wheatland Bracket clock!
I was at the shop getting a couple of links removed from the Twist-O-Flex bracelet on my Speidel Railroad watch and thought I’d peruse their wares. Upon looking at the mantel clocks, I noticed this Hamilton.
The woman assisting me told me someone had brought it in for refurbish and never came back to pick it up…thereby relinquishing ownership. The shop put it up for sale at the excellent price of $455.00 after a full overhaul.
Well naturally I had to take advantage of this beauty…as my mother owned a bracket clock I adored as a child.
The West German Hermle movement is from 1981, according to the clock maker. It chimes gently every quarter hour in the Westminster melody.
I have no regrets dropping the dough for this clock! Its case is a beautiful mahogany color with a bronze-pewter color dial that is a spectacle of emanating grandeur.
The clock itself is called the Wheatland, which is so fitting for its warm and sun-kissed appearance.
People often wonder what makes us WatchCrunch folks tick. A clock like this Wheatland is a wonderful example incarnate.
Show us your Bracket clock or other style of Mantel, Wall, Grandmother or Grandfather clock!
Time dictates my linear path to its bitter end. My watches keep me one step ahead of time...and bring a bit of flavor to my daily duties.
