Correcting the fixed hands of time

 

 

“The clocks understood, they kept moving, motion, following the truth that change is the nature of God’s mind, and resistance to it is the source of great pain.” ― Craig Ferguson, Between the Bridge and the River

Digital clocks need maintenance and updating. The face of the clock may have changed since your grandfather’s time but someone still needs to service them regularly. Electronic innards and high-tech components have replaced the simple time keeping systems of yesterday.

When you visit your favorite mall do you automatically calibrate your watch’s time to the mall’s public display clocks or do you trust that the time shown on your watch is correct?

Many times the large LED clocks featured in modern malls suffer from time lag — they need to be adjusted and serviced and maintained on a regular basis.

When this occurs men rise to the occasion and are hoisted up above the shopping crowds to get the clock back in sync with reality.

The man in this photo told me that harsh weather, winter winds and birds make it necessary to service the clocks.

  1. Neat! I’ve always found the idea of clockmakers and repairers rather romantic.

    • Back in the day when watches were more mechanical and less technical my uncle had his own watch repair shop. When he opened the back of watches a whole new world of springs, mini flywheels and springs would captivate my attention. I always wondered how he knew where everything went. Thanks for writing. Enjoy the day.
