You guys rock for following my blog! To celebrate this momentous occasion I decided to take pictures of some of the beautiful clocks that my dad has collected throughout his lifetime. One of the main reasons I do what I do is that my Grammy collected and loved clocks, but as she grew older she was swindled by repair persons who removed the original antique movements and replaced them with cheap mass-manufactured movements instead. I aspire to one day work on my grandmother’s clocks and bring them back to their former glory. 😳
Without further ado, here are some of the working and not working clocks we have around the house.
My own collection is all broken except for a few pieces. That’s the point – to fix them all and build up my horological muscles so I’m ready to trust myself with a family heirloom, and maybe one day with other people’s family heirlooms. My collection and my work area are shown below.
With sincere gratitude for those reading and following,
UPDATE: 8/26/16 and up to 25 😊 Thanks guys!
