I used to have a few of this type clock, if I remember correctly they were made in China, not a bad thing though, although I gave them all away I know they for a fact they are (all 4) still ticking! I had two wind ups and two battery operated. I found one battery operated and one wind up in the trash. I bought the other two at different flea markets, paid $5.00 for one and $8.00 for the other.

They're worth exactly what the next buyer is willing to pay for them. That's a job for marketing and sales.

Sure, there's an intrinsic utility value as well, but that's typically a small portion of the "worth" of an object.

Kinda nostalgic for me. As a kid, I used to have to pull the weights on my grandfather's clock to keep it going.
