About 8 Day Clocks

Before electricity and before batteries, people still needed clocks, which had to be wound in order to operate. The 8-Day clocks are a type of clock designed to work for eight days before it needs to be rewound. This style of clock was one of the first styles that replaced weight-driven clocks, and has been around since the late 1600s. If you would like a piece of history in your home, there are many different 8-Day clock styles available, including antique 8-Day clocks, which are collected by many clock collectors. Another style you might consider is the 8-Day cuckoo clock. Cuckoo clocks have different sounds that depend on the clock model, but they typically go off either every half hour or every hour. Hence, you want to make sure you purchase a clock with a sound you find enjoyable, and you might still want to consider turning your clock off at night. If you would like to have a piece of history in your home, make sure to check the large selection of 8-Day clocks that are available through eBay.
