Podocarpus Latifolius is a soft hardwood which makes beautiful grandfather clocks for sale.
On our flagship website we have many brands of grandfather clocks for sale. We also carry Holtzhausen Limited Edition clocks on grandfatherclocks.co.za and Howard Miller Clocks on howardmiller.co.za.
In order to eliminate confusion we want to assure all our customers and visitors that the pricing on all these three websites of grandfather clocks for sale are exactly the same.
On clocktrader.co.za we may advertise new or pre-owned clocks of any brand. If the clock is a new article and it also appears on one of our other websites, it will again be at the same price as advertised elsewhere.
If ever a customer or visitor of ours find that one of the clocks offered on any of our websites is available at a lower price on another of our sites, you will be entitled to purchase the clock at the lower price advertised. Please note that this offer is only valid in relation to our family of websites. If the same clock is advertised at a lower price on another company’s website, we will do all in our ability to match and beat that offering. Certain condition apply here. I will note a few but not all conditions: The product advertised has to be the exact same product as seen on our site/s, the product has to be available to purchase immediately, the product has to be new and not on special. We will compare the total cost only, i.e. the product may be advertised in the USA excl import taxes to RSA and delivery. Our price may include VAT and delivery. We will therefore compare the cost to you of our clock delivered to your door, all taxes included, to another clock delivered to your door through a reputable forwarding agent including taxes. Again, it may be easy to write a quick quote for the delivery of a 9 Tubular from Spain to Johannesburg on the back of a Nissan 1400 but it can’t be compared to a reputable and secure forwarding chain.
All eyes on the clock as we’ve launched a new high speed website into cyberspace…
On average I speak to 70 000 people a year in person, face to face, about the life expectancy of a clock or music box. Its a measure of quality; of value.
Often I am surprised by the unease of the enquirer when I mention that these artefacts will accompany quite a few generations. I guess it can be interpreted that the clock or music box is of greater value than a human life? My words are twisted to sound something like: “You will pass on my friend and when your family returns from your grave this clock will be ticking and that music box will be playing a tune when the new husband hangs his coat…”
I remember turning on my sister’s transistor radio after her death. It was unplugged and yet it played. The batteries had outlasted her! It upset me greatly and irrationally.
Or maybe we as consumers are dwarfed by these durables. We demand consumables! What will become of us if our purchases outlive us?! What will we do? There will be no need for buying! Our very indentities as consumers are threatened!
Note: All our clocks and music boxes are mechanically operated, wind up movements. Life expectancy stretches to 10 generations. Yet, without the human hand to do the winding, there is no music.
Balance lies at the heart of a clock. No balance. No tick tock. No movement. No smile.
See how balance can make you smile
Maybe this is why my beloved South Africa is so keen to show that we too aspire to brotherly love, peace and democracy…Watch the Third Man from 4:25 onwards. Think I should send Mr. Zuma a cuckoo clock for his office wall?
Happy voting cadres!
