SWIZA 8 ALARM CLOCK (CLK 081)

Item Code : CLK 081

Condition: 8.5/10

Description

The history of watches began in 16th century Europe, where watches evolved from portable spring-driven clocks, which first appeared in the 15th century. Portable timepieces were made possible by the invention of the mainspring in the early 15th century.

This is a high quality alarm clock by Seth Thomas brand, 8 day, 7 jewel specifications on the dial, “Swiss Made” on the dial as well as on the back and the stylish brushed and lacquer finished however slightly scuffed natural colored aluminum case. due to its greatly reduced need for rewinding plus adequate winding key finger clearance is almost as easy to live with as is a simple battery powered analog or digital alarm clock but certainly has more character than either. I also like it because of its high quality construction, it is a mechanical clock and unlike a clock radio, it is instinctively easy to reliably set the alarm when weary from travel. There is no need to worry about a weak or dead battery when it is vital to get up on time. With the advent of inexpensive quartz travel alarm clocks, it seems doubtful that a high quality mechanical clock such as this will ever be produced again.
