    This one isn't a wall clock, but there are some great antique clocks out there (that may or may not hang on the wall). This one is a Seth Thomas. [​IMG]

    I've always loved cuckoo clocks. We have one now, that's around forty years old. The cuckoo's a little hoarse these days; in winter it squeaks rather than sings. It interrupts phone conversations and television shows, but I've got to have it.

    the JLC is very cool. i've been browsing the Sales Corner at Timezone.com lately and they'll have some cool pieces by the mid to high end watchmakers. i saw a very nice Panerai earlier today that was inlaid in mahogany. my favorites are the old clocks that were used in boats/ships. saw a Hamilton a few weeks back on TZ. http://landandseacollection.com/id166.html -Jeff

    I like the starkness of this clock mixed with the baroque looking hands. Cheap too.

    This URL doesn't work, could you post it again? I'm very interested to know what you're talking about.

    Sorry alexei, it looks like it's gone from the site now. Here's a picture I had though.

    Not really a wall clock, but the JLC Atmos has to be one of the coolest clocks ever. Never needs winding. Never needs batteries. It runs on minute changes in air temperature. http://www.davewestclocks.co.uk/atmos_clock.htm
    Here's two other Atmos and another Jaeger with the linear movement: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
