I have a number of desk clocks around the house, and one wall clock.

Most are digital (although the wall clock is analogue), and most are radio controlled.

Only the clock on my bedroom radio (which dates to the early 1990's) and the clock on my kitchen cooker and microwave, and the one in my bathroom, are not radio controlled - so they rarely get changed between summer and winter time, so I have to remember whether to add or subtract an hour from the time displayed on them.  On the other hand, I have two radio controlled clocks in the bedroom, so the clock on my bedroom radio is somewhat superfluous.

I own one watch. it was quite expensive but i never wore it, and the battery has run out now. I rely on my phone for the time.

Except for going to and coming home from work, i realy have no need to know what the time is.

LOL.. I use this computer one.. As I am in here a lot. the one on my wall needs a repair man and the one on the other wall is a cheep replacement that I picked up at some store.. LOL I have a watch but do not use it often unless I have to be in town and have an appoint i have to keep but have time to burn.. Most of the time I go straight from home to appointments so I have no need for a clock. I wake up on my own so don't need one that way.. LOL

That is interesting that you don't use one in the houe other then your phone. Mine does not do time, or at least I don't know how to check the time on it or know if I can! LOL

George I also have a couple old Pocket watches.. I actually like old clocks and if I had the money would probably be a hobby collecting them! LOL You should post a couple of pictures I will try to post my big one soon! I love it! LOL

I would love to see the ones or one that dates back to the 1900's!
