    Default Gordon and soskin clock (RE: Kevin W.)

    This clock arrived today, finally, just came from Vancouver, i think by way off
    dogsled.
    It is a big disapointment.It has a battery operated movement.If i had known this earlier, with better pics and a better description off Ebay i would have never bought this.
    After some fiddling and some oiling its working.
    I have learned my lesson on this one and will thoroughly check out all future purchases, Ebay or elsewhere. :frown:

    Veritas, with ebay, you win some, you loose some. Hope it wasn't too expensive

    When buying on ebay, its always a good idea to use the ask seller a question function before even contemplating leaving a bid

    I should have asked for more pictures.At least my wife likes it.
    I paid less than 30 dollars for it, 30 dollars too much, will know better next time.

    It doesn't always help to ask questions. I saw an anniversary clock that didn't have a very good description, and asked the seller about it. She said definately it was wind up, not battery. I bid after she told me this. She was confused, since it did have a moving pendulum, that meant in her mind that it was wind up. It is battery operated.
