If you have a clock collection - you may be wondering about displaying your clock collection. This is actually one of the most fun things about getting collectable clocks! When you have a clock collection, you can share it quite easily. Displaying your clock collectables along one wall is a great idea. Set each clock to the proper time so they are all showing appropriate time.

Be gentle with them, and understand that they may just not be able to keep up with the younger folks!
