Okay this is one purchase made a few months ago I didn't know if I would share or not..... I'm ashamed to admit it but I'm a little embarrassed about my clock, I think.
I saw it in a pile of household odds and ends, picked it up, walked away without it thinking "Man that is one ugly clock". I then carried on browsing around the Keysborough Salvos and my mind kept going back to the ugly clock, I was thinking "I bet it doesn't even work" I went back to have a look at the battery piece and it looked okay. I then walked away leaving it again.
"Screw it, I want that ugly clock" I went back when someone else was browsing and heading towards it.
It set me back $3.
It has Hislon Quartz on it, I have found out that Hislon is a well known watch company but I can't work out if this is a genuine vintage clock or some strange knock off.
Can anyone help with any more information or background?
I figured I'd hang it and see if it grew on me, it has.
It's quite heavy and appears to be anodised metal which I love. Here's a few more examples of vintage anodised household items which I'm looking out for.

|Cup set with table from Kittys Vintage Kitsch|
|Vintage Anodised Champagne Flutes on Cool for Cats|
Okay now be honest, I can take it on a scale of 1-10 ..... how ugly is my clock?
I'm linking up with Treasure Hunt Thursday also on this one for some additional opinions.
