Saturday Photo Hunt --- Broken







BROKEN



This Kundo Mantel clock under glass dome I have shown before in Photo Hunt, with Time as the theme. Then it was working, but now it is broken I am sad to say. Nothing we do makes it run for more than ten minutes so we have finally given up. But not discarded it, just in case!

It really is neat as you can see all the movement in action, that is when it is not broken! It is one for the first early clocks with a transistorized switch and dates from around 1960 which you can probably tell.


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

...but then sometimes ten minutes is all you need! Interesting as always.

That's so beautiful whether it works or not that I would save it for the look. For that matter I have a cuckoo clock my Dad brought me many decades ago when he took a trip to Switzerland. It doesn't work anymore but I save it because it's so pretty. Hope you have a good and healthy weekend!

I'm with James: prefer the lower pic.

How do we know that it is really broken? :)

That's a beautiful time piece. How good it will be if we can just turn back the clock to be more youthful... haha! Nice photos JMB.

Nice idea, I like the way it featured in an earlier PhotoHunt too.

Maybe you can get it fixed?

I've got a clock here in similar condition. I can't find batteries suitable for it, but I shan't throw it away because it's one of the very few things that belong to my father...a father that I unfortunately never got to know...long story.

Oh, so sad to learn that that clock's broken. Isn't there a clock repairer you can take it too? :S

Such a nice clock, too bad it's broken.

There are things we throw without any regret once they are broken but this one is a treasure to keep :)

Happy valentine's Day :)

It is a lovely clock. Ten minutes is probably a lifetime somewhere in the Universe...
