70s Sunburst Clock and Others…


We won, we won, we won!

We won the 70s sunburst clock that we put in a bid for at the auction. Clock was collected last night and duly batteried, cleaned and inspected by the other half. A did a sterling job, as always!

I absolutely love it and cannot wait for it to be in situ somewhere in the house.  There are so many modern reproductions; I’m thrilled to finally possess a genui-ine vintage one!

In honour of the new addition, I thought I’d post up some pics of our other retro clocks dotted around the house. There is a substantial collection of Westclox alarm clocks in the loft; fetching them out is definitely a job for another night!

Made in Germany, sold on a Glossop antiques market stall… this little treasure was purchased for the Holtster (AKA the other half) a few Christmasses ago. I think he was pleased with it!

Forget the iPod touch… all you need is this amazing clock! It comes complete with the radio and a light. What more do you need?  Holtster bought this intending for it to be sold on Ebay. However, it was tested in the living room and seems to have found itself a comfy spot. In truth, I think both of us love it too much now to part with it.

I will find out the Westclox collection one day…
