This is the second one I've purchased. First, I bought one for my daughter. When she left home, I bought one for myself. I love the sentiment on the clock, and it's a great size for a desk, small counter, or anywhere.
I guess I shouldn't expect much considering what I paid for the clocks. I had problems with the hands working properly. They were given as gifts and only one person has said she liked it. I was very pleased with the free, prompt replacement of one of the broken clocks.
I just want to say that this clock is so sturdy! I accidentally knocked it down on my tile floor and not only did it not break but it still works fine. The battery flew off when it crashed but it went right back in! Amazing!
