    I was reading a book in my living room the other evening and realized how loud the ticking actually is. Bet you can all hear the one that's out of beat, right?

    Mostly I'm just trying to embed a You tube video as I haven't done it before.

    Don,

    I'd welcome the distraction. It has to be pretty loud for me to hear over the darn tinnitus I've developed. Perhaps for me it's more like a room full of old Electric Clocks running. Bet it gets real interesting on the top of hour. :excited:

    Enjoy!

    How about when you walk in the house and immediately know one of the clocks has stopped ? :))

    Your arm must be very tired on winding day.

    Can everyone hear that one just to the right of the TV? :whistle:

    I have a 10X14 upstairs bedroom converted into an office with 16 clocks running. And there is a bunch all over the house. I love it.

    And vice versa - I don't know any other women whose husbands support their early dollar watch (and ephemera, watch holders, watch keys, chains, fobs, pictures of people wearing watches, etc, etc) collecting and research.

    Good point. I have two winding days. Saturdays for the first floor clocks and Sundays for the upstairs clock.
