The Watchmaker in Me

Way back, the profession I went to school for, was sales and I worked in a jewelry store. I guess a little bit of that has stuck with me and I now have a "thing" for clocks.

For quite some time I have been looking for a antique alarm clock and on this trip I found one! Sure it was over wound, but I wanted to take on the challenge and fix it.

When I opened it up I discovered that the insides were not screwed together, but riveted together. Until I figure out how to open and close up the insides - there will be no fixing this alarm clock.

I still love the look and it has a place on my night stand.

On a different day we visited one of the antique shops in Caldwell and this beauty called out to me.

Now to the real cool thing about it, it's a travel clock! You can flip up the back and roll up the front.

Is that cool or what?

I don't know what it is about this era, but I love the design, and the shape...everything.

And you know what, the best thing about it is that it actually works and keeps time pretty good too!

Aloha A Hui Hou!

    1. Aloha Liz! Earlier that day, in a repurposed store, we saw the same model in was over wound and they wanted an arm and a leg for it. Sadly I passed on it. Never thought I'd find another. Especially not on the same day! So glad I did!

  2. Love the clock collection! It is always a plus when it actually works! Bravo!


Go ahead, don't be shy. Love to hear your thoughts and helpful comments!
