Why You Should Buy A Mantle Clock

Updated on January 16, 2010

You need to buy mantle clocks. Why? Well, I’d like to list a few reasons to see if I just can’t convince you.

  • The look

What do I mean? Well, mantle clocks have a look about them that you don’t find on any other kind of clock. They fit in really well with their surroundings if you place them right. I promise. Especially if they are placed over the fireplace. It really makes the house feel like home. Try looking at a mantle clock without wanting to curl up with a nice warm mug of hot cocoa. It can’t be done!

  • The style

Something about mantle clocks is just flat-out classy. Unlike some wall clocks, which can look really tacky, mantle clocks will always stay in style. They worked 200 years ago, they work now, and they will work 200 years from now. If you take care of them, you can give them to your grandchildren, and they can give them to their grandchildren. Can you say that about the clock that hangs above your cubicle in the office? No, you can’t!

  • They last

Like I said, you can give a mantle clock to you children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. No joke. Mantle clocks have that “family heirloom” factor that so few products have nowadays. Get a good Swiss mantle clock and you will never have to worry about your living room again. What else can you say that about?

  • They are classic

Owning a mantle clock brings about an air of 18th century class. If they are good enough for queens and kings, then they are most likely good enough for you and me!

  • They WORK!

Most things that you and I will ever buy will be total junk. That’s just a fact of life. Whether it is cars of cornflakes, most products on the market are terrible. I don’t claim to know why, but that’s the truth. Unlike most of these other crap products, quality mantle clocks really are quality. You just can’t say that about most things anymore, and it is too bad. But at least you are still covered in this one aspect.

There you have it folks. I really do believe that mantle clocks are absolutely the best. If you don’t agree with me by now, then I do not know what will convince you.
