    Couple of these are also on ebay - the Tag ones. They have an asking price of £250 so it would be cheaper to get one through that auction.

        I tend to be of that mind-set too. A radio-controlled one in the kitchen is as far as we go as it is actually useful for telling the time.

        And I am very dubious about the origin of these "dealer" clocks. There were a rash of them available a few years and the general view is they were all made in China. Without seeing a dealer's wall.

          I also believe they were all fake. I saw some for sale 3 years ago in China for £20 each. I nearly bought one for my garage. Has anybody ever seen a clock like these on a dealers wall?

            Yes, this is what I was trying to imply. Never seen one of these on a dealer's wall. Ever. Grateful if any TURFer can confirm whether they have?

              i've seen the Panerai wall clock but it's tiny at 14cm and not cheap at almost £4k sure they used to do a Luminor Marina clock that was a lot cheaper

                  I bought a "Daytona" wall-clock from a Watch Collector a few years ago for my games room. Haven't got round to putting it up, yet...

                    Oh well, I may as well admit that I bought a "Green Sub" wall clock a few years ago to go in the study of a work flat I had purchased. The only problem was that, when vertical, the second hand would have enough oomph to descend but at about the 8 marker, it lost the will to live and couldn't go any higher...............

                    However, it would keep good time if laid flat. So it spent most of its time on a coffee table instead of the wall!

                      Next time you see Fer, ask him about putting up bike racks!

                        My wife bought me a Submariner dealer wall clock for my study. Its of lovely quality with a smooth sweeping second hand and date. If its a fake, its a very good one.

                          Yes it is a very good fake. Or actually a Chinese version of something that does not even exist in the Rolex world!

                            I rather fancy this model. I got to work right on time today:
