Just as wrist watches on an arm, clocks have been decorating castles, palaces, houses, apartments and public buildings for centuries, serving more than just one purpose. Clocks are not only valuable in measuring time, but can also serve to tell moonphases and help create an atmosphere that is aesthetically pleasing, beautifully integrating visual and sound effects.
Throughout history intelligent clock makers, in their eagerness to explore new and unique ways to tell time, developed clocks that would continue to fascinate. The kind of clocks that can be most commonly found include towerclocks, floorclocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks, specialty clocks, alarm clocks, ship chronometers and peagon clocks.
Few people know that a clock, as any other mechanical instrument or device, needs routine service to keep functioning properly and stay beautiful. A thorough cleaning should be performed every 10 to 12 years. Old oil and dirt needs to be removed and every part inspected for damage or wear.
Often clocks were handed down within families and maintance was neglected. The older these clocks become the more rare and valuable they might be; restauration of the movement and case can bring back its beauty and assure that it will stay at its highest value.
