    My friend Doyle Sanders gave me two odd clocks not long ago. Both were Hamden's, in nice nickel plated brass desk-type cases. Oddly, both were battery wound. I sent them to my friend Dan Clark, who made them work. The three of us donated them to the NAWCC Museum, and they should be arriving soon. I hope someone will do a Bulletin article on them. Dan felt they were prototypes. One had no serial number. There was no way to set the watches/clocks. Just thought you all might find that interesting.
