Question for You Guys

Wall Clocks.

Does anyone ever buy any cool wall clocks or grandfather clocks?  Or…do we all go around dropping thousand or tens of thousands of dollars on wrist watches, and hang $30 clocks on the walls of our home?

It seems like this is what we do, right?  Am I wrong?

I live, work, and have family in 3 time zones. So I have this right above my desk

I brought this up a few months ago as I was looking for a wall clock for my living room. Wish I could stretch for a nice full size grandfather clock, but not in the cards now. After getting some advice on here, I found just what I was looking for.

We've got my wife's Waterbury on the wall in our living room. It has been in her family for as long as anyone can remember, we think it is from the early 20th century, and we brought it over from Ireland 15 years ago. Due a service now and it needs the glass window refitted but it still ticks away beautifully.

I've always wanted a Napoleon Hat style mantel piece clock with hourly chimes 👍

Afraid to admit, but just have a simple quartz ikea wall clock in the kitchen.

I would like a JLC Atmos , but they are proper wrist watch money!

Got this beauty in my office, from the lifestyle brand Labour & Wait. Made in England too which is a nice touch.

More of a desk clock than a wall clock, and I haven’t bought it yet, but I plan on getting a Nixie tube clock in the next couple of months. I work in the nuclear power industry and this thing just screams 1950’s atomic era

One of my many office wall clocks.

The Kit-Cat klock, still made in the USA, affordably and in many colors!

Much as I've recently found family watches that have been sitting in drawers for decades, a couple smaller standing pendulum clocks and a long unused grandfather clock are about to be revived. I can't say I'm particularly enthused about having to wind yet another something every day, but maybe I'll enjoy it.

The typical AA-powered cheap quartz clock is fantastic in that almost all of them use a standard interchangeable movement that can be swapped out fairly easily.

That takes two C batteries which last half as long as one AA. The trick is to find an old electric one.

Absolutely! Schneider Cuckoo clock that I picked up in Triberg, Germany over a decade ago (featuring sausage cutting and beer drinking animation), family heirloom Hentschel granddaughter clock, and always-accurate Alexa-enabled Mickey Mouse Bluetooth clock with kitchen timers.

I don't have any wall clocks in my home, but I do have this retro looking quartz desk clock with a smooth sweeping seconds hand in my home office. I picked it up in 2020 from a site called RoyalEnamel on Etsy, and have received several compliments on it.  This same company makes several retro styled clocks, and they must be selling reasonably well, since I've started seeing ads on FB for knock off versions.

Every so often I do a search for a pre-owned JLC Atmos clock, but I've yet to find one the right combination of model, condition and price. The concept of a clock powered by temperature fluctuation really intrigues me.
