    Fun or a useful timepiece

    My 1760 Henry Body longcase clock, made in Battle, Sussex is a single-hander. The dial is marked in 15 minutes. Keeps withing two minutes a day, so nothing new. Only disadvantage is it is too big for my wrist........ mike

    I have only one Skagen and it is an odd ball, neither being slim or simple. bought off a jeweller friend new, but sans instructions. - obviously with a discount. Their customer service was non existent. Anyone own a Skagen ? mike

    DIY LED clock kit

    In the late 1960's our senior technician apprentices designed and built a Nixie clock. The carpentry boy built the cabinet in mahogany. Sir Barnes Wallace, who invented the WW2 Bouncing Bomb presented the annual prizes to our trainees. And was himself presented with the clock by the Senior Trainee. As it was leading edge technology - then - he was delighted. Here is Habitat's version, I have in my den. mike
