The Beauty of Modern Times and Antique Clocks
Antique clocks are available in many different styles; floor standing models like Grandfather clocks, wall hanging, mantle clock or shelf clocks, bracket or table clocks and others. There are weight driven clocks and key driven clocks. Antique clocks are amazing machines that were made before electricity was in use.
The value of an antique clock comes by determining the following; mechanical complexity, reputation of the maker, aesthetics and condition. Most collectors and owners want their antique clocks to be in original, working condition. Antiques clocks require regular maintenance to keep internal parts functioning optimally. Bring your antiques to Village Watch Center for repairs, maintenance or restoration.
An iPhone sitting next to an antique clock is stark realization of how far we’ve come over the years. An item that was as functional as it was beautiful is now a treasured piece to be admired. Knowing the time is still a requirement however technology has changed the way we tell time. Phones, mass produced wall clocks and digital appliances have taken over the way we tell time today.
The beauty of modern times is that we can own and admire antique clocks, keeping an appreciation and admiration for the pioneers who produced clocks long ago.
We can take our antique clocks to shops for repairs or maintenance knowing that the age-old tradition of clock making and fixing antique time pieces is still an honored occupation.
