I too have several clocks, though I doubt you could call them desk clocks around the place, two of which have been the subjects of quite extensive repair/refurb threads. There was the Grandfather Clock Project where my inherited clock was completely stripped, cleaned and rebuilt...

Then there was the Bentima Anniversary Clock project...

Retirement will hopefully open up an exciting new chapter for you, free from all the constraints/demands that comes with being employed.

I was reluctant to retire as I thoroughly enjoyed working, but circumstances dictated otherwise.

However, soon realised that I should have retired much sooner! :yes:

Time for DC & I to do what we want, not provide & maintain lifestyles for others.

Just pace yourself, Deano, you’ll be surprised what opportunities can, & will, come your way.

Enjoy!
:thumbsup:

No, you're right, this clock is NOT on my desk but I couldn't resist showing it.

I am generally not a fan of Franklin Mint stuff but I couldn't resist this so called "Marie Antoinette" model when I saw one going for £35 some time ago. The movement is a design by Hermle and it chimes the hours and at the half hours. I hate to admit this but neither Kristina or myself are very good with mechanical wind-up clocks, and we tend to try out a mechanical before then reverting once more to quartz. In the case of this example, it stayed silent in my room for some time before eventually making its way downstairs to our sitting area. Then, after a brief spell interrupting our TV programs with its bell chime, it had to be silenced once again, and now sits there no doubt longing for someone to wind it up again.:laugh:

Gordon's Gin promotional item from years ago.  Made from folded card with a quartz movement stuck on the back and held in place with Blu Tack :laugh:  But it remains in use to this day.

On my window sill rather than my desk!!! Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos clock. A thing of beauty although it does need a service and small repair

My first post, other than my introduction post, so go gentle...!

I make my own clocks, not the movement, but the main body of the clock, from old whisky barrels. Have lots and lots of them now, in all different sizes and shapes. This one currently on my desk, was the first one i ever made, so is a bit 'rustic'! My newer ones have better finish, some have indices in different types of wood, but we all have to start somewhere. And it tells me when tea break time is!

The best thing about making these, is the aroma you get when sanding them down!
