The price was right were I live the electricity goes out a lot during winter and with digital alarm clocks all they do is flash after the juice goes off. Well a old wind up still keeps going and don't need electricity. So I started looking for vintage alarm clocks on line. I got this one from a guy who rebuilds them into animated ones I got this Big Ben by westclox from him were he put a Indian motor cycle dial and the motor cycle ticks back and forth kind of cool. And the price was right cheaper that buying a fixer upper on Ebay then paying another to service it. Goes good with the antique candle stick phone by the bed they both sound the same when they go off. I call this a fun clock probably the best deal I ever got for a clock. And made in the USA can't beat that. Not bad for a 100 bucks serviced and ready to go as soon as delivered.
