Everything to Know About Anniversary Clocks
Contrary to popular belief, anniversary clocks weren’t designed to be anniversary gifts—though they could be perfectly suited for such a purpose. Instead, the original clocks were designed to last from one winding to the "anniversary" of the next, a timespan that can be as long as 400 days!
Featuring a spinning pendulum that twirls back and forth at the base of the clock, these treasures are both elegant in design and make excellent conversation starters and beautiful additions to any home. Here at the Clock Shop, we make finding an anniversary clock for your space an easy and enjoyable experience.
Key Points on Anniversary Clocks
If you aren't familiar with anniversary clocks, you may benefit from learning a few tips and pointers before you make your purchase:
- Original mechanical anniversary clocks were designed rarely needing to be wound, and as such they did not require frequent attention. A single full winding provided a year's worth of motion or more. Anniversary clocks from the Clock Shop are all battery operated allowing some models to also include bim bam and 4/4 Westminster chime settings
- German made quartz movements ensure that your anniversary clock will keep accurate timing. Unlike traditional mechanical anniversary clocks, you won’t need to wind or adjust the timekeeping, just remember to change the batteries every year. Treat your clock as a keepsake item and pass it down through the generations of your family—they make a perfect memento and are "timeless" in their own right
