    You are correct in that there are 10 clocks in the photo. The 3 hanging on the wall are cases I built. One houses a John Wilding movement , one a month runner ...running on the least amount of weight possible ( just like Scottie would have liked) and the last a pin wheel. Those doesn't count as you can't really see them.
    Yep two Dutch clocks and a Comtoise. The others?

    Progress! Just curious, have/are your clocks going back in the same places, or are you using this opportunity to dust, clean and rearrange?

    jb, I did the same thing, then remounted the shelving the clocks were on, the wall anchors pulled out of the wall an hour later, luckily only two broken cases that went back together, one broken 400 day dome (rats), one Seth Thomas crystal shelf clock door glass (beveled, expensive) and a broken suspension feather (coming from Timesavers). New, longer shelves with more supports going in next.

    Certainly used the time to dust and clean. Gave thought to rearranging but our eyes have been trained to seek out the time in certain places so for the most part they went back to where they were. A few changes..the Frisian Stoelklok ended up on the wall in the basement..my wife never really appreciated the clock. My actual grandfather's German Box clock made it out of the basement to the upstairs. My Comtoise clock did not get it's spot back and still waiting to be hung.... i think it will end up in the basement ...sigh.

    I agree that it's habit to look for the time in specific places. Sorry to hear that some are losing their places, but....they can rotate back. :). Or maybe you can get a comfy chair in the basement to visit with your friends?
