Editor's Notes

February 14, 2019:

While most would consider a true grandfather clock to be an expensive, precision time-piece with cable-driven movement, we decided to include a few cheaper battery-operated choices for buyers who can't afford a several thousand dollar purchase but would still like to decorate their home with this style of clock. In addition to the classic, squared style we included some more contemporary curved options.
