With the advancement of technology and all of the things available to us in modern times, many traditional practices have simply gone by the wayside – replaced by the newer, faster methods. Time telling through the use of clocks – one of the oldest human inventions – has a much different face than in years’ past. Today we largely get our time updates through our computers or our cell phones which are never far from reach. But there is something to be said for tradition – the elegance of the tried and true. And when it comes to telling time in a traditional way, nothing is more elegant than a grandfather clock.
We could have cell phones and computers in every corner of our home and they would never – could never – equal the distinct grace of a grandfather clock. For generations, grandfather clocks have made their homes in our home – tucked in a corner where they chime in the hour or welcoming visitors in an entranceway with regal height. Grandfather clocks used to be the prized possession of many a home and so they were passed from generation to generation in families – a high quality heirloom that boasted superior craftsmanship.
While technology has replaced many traditional things in today’s world, it can never replace craftsmanship on this level. Sometimes the old can become new again. In the case of timeless classics such as grandfather clocks, elegance of this kind never goes out of style. The grandfather clock can brighten and finish a room and stay with a family for generations – a tradition that they will continue to celebrate for many years to come.
