By all reasonable logic, watches and clocks should have gone the way of the fax machine, or the VCR: Who could possibly need them now that we’re all perpetually glued to mobile phones, and scarcely an hour goes by where we aren’t confronted with the time? And yet because our lives aren’t always ruled by logic, particularly when it comes to matters of style and home decor — stiletto heels and decorative bed pillows being prime examples — the popularity of analog timepieces still stubbornly persists. Luxury watch sales are at an all-time high, and designers continue to release new wall and table clocks as if the past 20 years never happened. But you know what? We get it. There’s something really special about the way these objects serve such a primal function while also acting as blank canvases for artistic expression (in a way that fax machines never did). We love coming across amazing watches and clocks when we’re shopping, especially for vintage, so we decided to devote a post today to cataloguing our favorite examples, sourced from one of our favorite shopping platforms, eBay.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
