Back in 2001, My Liberty Mutual sales manager gifted me this crystal Mikasa table clock for my proficiency in transacting the intangible wares of Life, Property and Casualty Insurance. Though these days of soul-bludgeoning adventures are long gone, this crystal-housed clock remains poised on my side table as a reminder of those days of mandatory resilience.
Inside the clock rests a German-made movement…ever stepping its motor forward one tick at a time…stalwart in its purpose…its gears tidily ratcheting within its clear housing.
Hermle makes this movement, which manufactures all sorts of clocks…from mantel clocks that cost a few hundred dollars…
up to grandiose clocks costing thousands.
So I sit humbled…lounging in my Lazy Boy…thanking my lucky stars I get to enjoy the inviting ’tick, tick, tick’ of this table clock as it lounges next to me.
Show us a table clock of yours you appreciate, how you got it, and how it makes you feel.
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.
