Is there any relation between clocks and antiques? I personally feel that it does have a strong relation. The antique collection of all great collectors would definitely have a clock. The clocks add a lot of beauty to the house and the people in the house are sure to cherish the presence of an antique clock. My parents had always been on auctions to buy the antique pieces. They look at the beauty of those grandfather clocks and I as usual look at the technological brilliance even in the 18th century. The other type of clock that has got me thinking of how it could have been assembled so many years back are the wall clocks with the cuckoo in it. The mechanical movement inside the wall clock that makes the cuckoo move in and out is amazing. The old grandfather clocks that are considered true pieces of antics are normally sold at very high auction centers of the world. Also the way in which these clocks function are to be carefully analyzed as in some cases these clocks perform exceptionally well that it could even outperform the present day clocks that are manufactured with superior metals and better tools. Also those antique clocks were manufactured by craftsmen of the kings who made them for days together with simple hand tools. Despite that they have a rich look with royal embossing. Antiques definitely involve the clocks.
