I read the reviews about the "cheesy craftsmanship" and in part I agree with some of their statements... the metal is bendable (not like foil or anything, you would have to mean to bend it... Just picking it up wouldn't do it) and it's looks a little more rustic in person... If that's the word I'm looking for... Maybe a little "hand crafted"... But I have to say aside from all that... it's really cool. EVERYONE likes it and the way it mounts adds tons to it (it sticks out about 2 inches from the wall, very easy to mount) and I kind of like the "rustic" or "hand worked metal" look it has. But really, everyone says how neat it is ask where I got it from. I love it and it's one of my favorite things in my new house. I would especially suggest this for any, and I mean any, guy that's into guy things....
Overall this is a very unique clock. It has one flaw that does bother me and that is that the roman numbers are crooked. from the picture I just assumed that the clock would have some depth to it but it is paper thin, made of bendable weak medal. once we got it hung it does look nice but is rather loud. I do believe that for what the clock actually is it is a bit over priced, but its bought and up on the wall so its staying.
This is not just a clock but also a piece of art. We hung it in our corporate office and all we get is comments and compliments on how beautiful it is. We constantly get asked if the gears move and we always chuckle and say no. But boy, that would have been awesome if they did! Great piece - no regrets in purchasing this!
I saw this clock in a local furniture store and fell in love with it so I checked out Overstock.com and sure enough there it was with a teriffic savings. The shipping was fast and the clock arrived in great shape. Looks fantastic on the wall. Definitely adds character to the room.
Great clock - terrible shipping. It was packed in a flat box with almost no padding at all. The item arrived bent, in two places unable to bend back. One of the gears has several teeth bent in a way I can't straighten, and one of the mounting scews is off kilter because it. I love the clock, but the shipping and handling was terrible.
The quality is poor, the metal is too thin and there is no "body" to the "wheels". Because the guage of the metal sheet used for the "cut-outs" is thin, despite proper packaging, it arrived bent. May be it should be packed as "fragile". I wanted to return it but my offspring thought it looked cool. I think for the quality I would have been happy to pay ** and the *** I paid was not worth it.
Poor Qua;ity, cheaply made. Very tiney. Also noisey.

Clock is not exactly made from finest material. But with price, and oveall looks I really like it. I actually debated buying this now for 1.5 years. Just bought a condo and finally chumped up. the one and only flaw is that I never read the measurements. This clock is huge. I am overall still happy. Just will hang in a different area. It is too large for the place I wanted to put it. But again. I love this clock. And fast delivery.
I ave been eyeing this piece for the past few years. When I finally got a house, I stopped seeing it in catalogs. I tracked it down on both Amazon and Overstock and got the best deal on Overstock. After reading the reviews, I was a little concerned with the build quality of the item and hoped it wouldn't look cheesy. I was expecting a thinner metal design (similar to pier1) that could have a nice style impact in my living room. I love that it slanted on an angle (my room does as well). I drilled the holes as my wife vacuumed the drywall and had it from the box to mounted in 10 minutes flat. Easy, lightweight, stylish....perfect addition to out den.
