What time is it?

So, the other day I'm at my new favorite junking spot and I hear the unmistakable sound of a cartload of fresh junk being wheeled in. You junkers know exactly what I'm talking about, dontcha? I turned just in time to see this collection of vintage Big Ben clocks rolling by. I grabbed them so fast, I think the poor man pushing the cart was terrified. My personal favorite? The black one. Which one do you like best?
P.S. They all work!

I agree with you...the black one's the coolest. The one on the right with the blue stand?...My Mom had that one when I was a kid. I got in trouble more than once for moving the hands and making it ring :+)

I have a couple Big Bens, and one Baby Ben, and I love them! That blue one on the left is pretty awesome. Great score!

I like the black one and the bluish one on the left - and the fact that it's 5:00 o'clock somewhere.

Love the blue one on the left (we have a Ben so I am a collector of these sweet tiny clocks, we had a blue "Baby Ben" in his room when he was little.) Great find!

Oh man!! What an awesome find!! You'd think I'd heard a bomb ticking w/ how quickly I move when I hear the tick tick tick of a vintage clock in a thrift store.

Oh Boy, did you strike a nerve in me when I got a look at all those clocks...Awesome find...
I cant't choose, I like them all..
Have a nice TIME with all those, my hubby is building me shelves above my living room windows to house all the ones I have now.

I'm contrary as I like the one on the right with the round face & the foxing on the numbers. LOVE clocks too. I'm in search now for hanging kitchen clocks like my Grandma had in her kitchen. BTW...will have to take pictures of the radios we have in our house to show you all we are definitely junkers too.
