“I can’t believe it. I just can’t stop looking at it. Can’t stop tingling when it chimes. And the meaningfulness… the way that it will go on in our family for generations. It’s simply amazing.”
These were the words of a new bride, in to simply gush about the wedding gift she’s received from her uncle, purchased through our store.
While we’re known for fine jewelry: necklaces, rings, earrings and yes, timepieces — many people don’t realize that we also carry the Howard Miller Home Collection, made up of wall clocks and grandfather clocks like the one the bride’s uncle purchased.
When it comes to Heirloom clocks, Howard Miller has thought of everything. Made in the USA, this particular clock, the “Moss Ridge”, has a driftwood finish that is wire brushed for a natural, reclaimed wood appearance. There’s a soft-black dial and raised chrome-finished Arabic numerals, and the minute track and hands are also chrome. A polished, chrome-finished bezel and polished chrome weight shells then complement the dial, and the chrome grid pendulum adds to the linear appeal of the clock.
The interior of the case is illuminated with an energy efficient LED lamp, which is dimmable to three settings by touching the upper right door hinge. A cable-driven, Westminster chime movement plays 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 chimes accordingly with full chime and strike on the hour. If you don’t like the clock chiming at night, there’s an automatic nighttime chime shut-off option.
“What makes the clock even more special is the time-capsule that comes with it,” explained the bride. A free Heirloom Record Certificate with nickel-finished capsule is included, along with a free nickel Heirloom Nameplate will be engraved with the recipients’ names and special date. “My uncle had our names, wedding date and the scripture my nephew read engraved on the plaque. And the certificate allows each owner to record their names and something special to pass down through the generations. It’s so amazing.”
