In our multimedia room, I like to have a (quiet) clock on the side - just so I don't get lost in music or a movie. I don't want it distracting from a film - low key is great. I had a nice clock in there, but it was a bit hard to see when the lights were dimmed. For this one, I blame Sanford12, my friends! He listed and sold a Jefferson Golden Hour Mystery clock on AK about a month or so back. At least I think it was him - he IS the clock man ... Anyway, I saw the "SOLD" ad, and thought the clock looked real interesting, Googled it, and found the Roger-Russell site, and read all about them, and was even more intrigued. They really do look really cool! The hands just seem to float in space inside the ring. Looks kind of like the Stargate in the movie! Anyway, I missed the one he sold on AK a couple weeks back, so I went to ebay and did a search, and found one for a reasonable price - listed as "Antique Jefferson Golden Hour Mystery Clock not working for parts" I like to tinker and the price was good, so I put in a bid and won it for that price. It arrived yesterday, I opened it up - glass dial was not broken (Yeay!) played with it a bit to set the time, and ... so far, its been keeping perfect time since 7PM last night! You kind of have to fiddle a bit to set the time - its not intuitive - so maybe the seller didn't get how to set it and thought it was broken - ah well! I put it on a wooden box on the Salamander console on the far right of the HDTV, set so it's illuminated from behind in a dark room when we watch TV! There's usually not much in the lower right corner of the screen. I bought a (different) clock from Sanford12 a couple years back, it was still working until I unplugged it to connect this new clock. And although this one wasn't from him, his Jefferson Clock SOLD post inspired me to find one of my own! I'd never seen one in person before - but Emma loves the look of it, and so do I!
