    Ive had a lot of clocks over the years, here is my latest desk clock, I know I know, it has batteries and is the spawn of the devil, but it is pretty cool and rare (accuracy +/- 12 SPY)

    Very nice and looks to be in excellent shape too. There are quite a few clock fanciers floating about here. I find it to be a very nice side line when watch pickings are thin on the ground, although I must say I haven't found anything for a few years now.

    Yes, when I replace my kitchen scales with ones with a 5kg limit I'll give you a nod and you are very welcome to my old ones for a sharp price
