    Default My Collection

    For the past few weeks I have picking every body's brains on the clocks in my collection. RM asked that I share the summary I put together to document my collection. Even though these are not new to me acquisitions this seemed the most appropriate place to post. Click image for larger version.

    If all these clocks are synched on the hour does it sound a bit like Pink Floyd?
    Thanks for sharing. Nice collection! (I still couldn't handle all that clanging)

    I like the Herschede! And Scottie I think the correct term is chiming, at least with the grandfather. The others...well.....Dark Side of the Moon.

    Nice cross section of clocks,I agree with Scottie re the "clanging",but every now and then it is fun to watch your guests faces and body language when everything goes off at noon !!

    Thanks for sharing your collection!

    Uh, I thought you said you were a "casual collector"?

    @ Scottie - I thought I would have a small number compared to folks here. But yes, thank goodness for being able to pause "live tv". @Bruce actually for me it is telling people on the phone that it is not my door bell ringing, but my clock chiming. @RM - I haven't purchased a clock (or sold a clock). These are all clocks that I have the good fortune to inherit from family members. I am thinking that I would like to make my first purchase. I am thinkng of an American weight driven regulator. The latest that has caught my eye is a Gilbert #4 regulator. I wish my tastes ran to the less expensive! There is one on ebay right now that is many multiples of my budget for purchase.

    I find no problem with having expensive tastes with a retiree's income. You simply have fewer clocks, they're harder to find and you still enjoy having what you want.

    Hmmm, I will have to try that logic on my wife Seriously, inheriting clocks has caused some duplication in style. Sounds like an opportunity.

    As with many other collectors, myself included - my tastes changed over the years as I finally focused on ONE particular style and type. So before you go ahead and spend a lot of money early you may want to proceed slowly in your acquisitions and let time tell you which direction you ultimately go. You mention duplication;
    inheriting clocks has caused some duplication in style. Sounds like an opportunity.
    With a few exceptions my collection is all duplication. Most all are Viennas.
