I must admit, I don't do so well with analog clocks. I need to be able to tell the time in a hurry lol. I have been trying to find an interesting clock for a long time. I fell in love with this one at Neiman Marcus, but they never had any in stock. Thankfully I found it on Apt2B. The customer service I received was top notch. The team answered all of my questions, calmed my nervous about the clock being too loud (its not), and even offered me a 10% off coupon since I was a first time customer. I know that Apt2B is known for their larger, upholstery pieces - but don't sleep on their accents! They have a great selection!
