On the other hand....how many battery clocks in your house

Our two wall clocks are battery operated clocks.
They really come in handy when storms knock out the power.

I have four. Isn't it amazing how long they can run on a battery?

Our one wall clock is battery operated. We also have a small table clock with battery.

My real *standby* is a "Grandmother Clock" that runs many weeks on a thorough winding. My maternal grandfather took it in trade around 1910 for some of the Watkins products he sold as a sideline to farming. To my knowledge it has only needed repairs twice.

The fancy Atmos clock DH received from his company hasn't worked in years -- requires expensive maintenance every two years, and we just stopped caring! I'ts always five o'clock on that shelf in the LR.

I also have a grandfather clock, with Westminster chimes but it's not an antique.
I bought it years ago.

We have 7! Most are just cute, decorative. 2 of those are atomic.

I only have two small decorative clocks that run on batteries and one of those is usually without a battery as I bought it just because I loved the look of it.

There are 4 computers and each one has a clock that is battery operated when not connected to a power source.

I have 9 clocks and all are battery operated, plus have the range and microwave that are not battery operated. I never look at them for time.
