This is the first chime clock I have ever owned, and now I don't know how we ever lived without one! This is a beautiful product, at an excellent price, and the chimes (of which you have two options) can be volume-adjusted and are very clear-sounding. The clock is sturdy yet elegant, with a beautiful retro/deco look, and looks great on our mantelpiece. I would not hesitate to give this as a gift to someone near and dear, and I look forward to many years of its presence and ensuing warmth in our home. As a result of this clock I really believe that, in a material sense, a house is not a home until you have a chiming clock!

Review:

This clock took awhile to arrive due to Sandy (hurricane)which was understandable! I'm very glad I waited. It's quite lovely and was easy to get going except the volume knob was alittle hard to manipulate and I turned it all the way off at first with out knowing it and thought it wasn't chiming. On the good side I'm glad that you can turn the chime off if necessary because I wasn't sure of that in the description. We weren't looking for a chiming clock but now I'm really enjoying the ambience. Very pleased, good deal too.

Review:

When my current mantle clock stopped working, I decided to look for a new one rather than try to get the old one repaired. So I thought this clock looked like a good replacement and I was more than happy when it arrived. First, it was a little larger than my original clock and the larger size works much better on my mantle. Second, I didn't realize how happy I would be with a radio-controlled clock but this feature is so wonderful, I don't know why I didn't go for it long ago! I like the size of the face, too. It's easy to read across the room. I still haven't gotten my old clock repaired but really, why bother when the replacement is such a gem?!

Review:

Definitely makes for an interesting conversation piece and goes well with any Modernist style living room. The only problem is that it tends to warp space-time within a one foot radius of the clock. Every now and then you might need to fix the time on it (as it tends go a bit slower). However, within the one foot proximity, my pet gold fish Frank has lived 5 times his life expectancy. Definitely a worthwhile product!

Review:

I'm very happy with this mantle clock. It is very good looking and its face is very visible from the room it's in and from an adjacent room (about 20 feet.) It was quite accurate as it was shipped - we haven't had to adjust timing yet. I can't say much about battery life since we've only had the clock about 6 weeks.

Review:

My only concern when ordering this clock was how loud it might me. I didn't find anything on the noise factor in the description. And since the clock is for the t.v. room, a loud tick would be distracting. I love the clock, and it looks great in the room. The old world look is a charmer. On a noise scale of 1-10, (10 being loudest) I give it a 2-3, but easily drowned out by the t.v. or conversation. It's only audible when the room is completely silent, or low volume on the t.v. I'm keeping it right where it is, and do recommend it. Really four stars doesn't seem enough, but I'm subtracting a star for the noise factor, albeit minimal.

This clock was ordered to stand in front and to the side of our large TV screen. My husband wanted a clock in front of him to tell the time, and I wanted something to go with our brand new TV screen. It blends in great and is a perfect little addition. It keeps great time and the face is easy to see and read. I would highly recommend this clock.

Review:

I was pleasantly surprised to have received my purchase two days after my order. The clock fits my new decor perfectly. It is white with black speckles, guess so that it will appear more aged. The face itself is large and is a creamish, tan color with flower prints and roman numbers. It's bigger than I thought it be despite reading the reviews. It requires a "C" battery. The ticking sound is loud, but I personally find it soothing. The alarm is very LOUD, but as a deep sleeper it definitely helps me wake up. You do have to set the alarm every night. I forgot to set it the second night. Overall a great purchase. I'm satisfied.

I bought this clock as part of a wedding gift for a friend. I had found the exact same item in a local store for $40 more than I paid through Amazon. The item arrived quickly and was exactly as described. I took the engravable plate that was included to Things Remembered and had it engraved. I would recommend this for anyone looking to get something special as a gift for yourself or someone else.

Review:

This is a fun item, a work of kinetic art (which is why I bought it), but not a serious clock. All of the visible gears turn but they have no connection to the time, they simply turn, and that's ok with me. The actual time, rather than all the spinning gears, is kept by the central clock mechanism and it keeps time accurately. The plastic gears are held in place very simply with metal screws & rods between the 2 circular retaining rings, and disassembly is fairly easy. With some brass spray point it makes a very nice steampunk decoration. markf
