Tik-tak tik-tak

February 4, 2011

The clocks at the Danish train stations are being replaced at the moment.

Yesterday Anders and I got our hands on these two. You would be amazed by how many people shoved up to buy them. We were in a Loooooong line (luckily in-front).

They are not in a good and functional condition at the moment, but I’m planning to (hopefully) make them work and install light inside them.

What do you think? -and by any chance; does anyone here know how to fix clocks like these?

    These are great. Not sure how to fix them–wish I could direct you to some resources, but I’m sure there must be someone around who is at least mechanically inclined.

    Hvor er de fine og store :) jeg har selv et ur stort set magen til fra en landsbystation i vestjylland. Jeg har undersøgt mulighederne for at få uret til at gå igen. Elektrikeren sagde at det godt kunne lade sig gøre, MEN 1. det koster en del, og ledningen vil blive ret lang/omfattende, da det er et gammelt ur. Og 2. uret larmer ret meget i et alm. lille hjem (lejlighed). Så jeg har faktisk valgt ikke at sætte strøm til, men bare at hænge det op i stuen. Jeg elsker det, og jeg har ikke haft gæster endnu, der ikke har kommenteret det som sjovt. Knus Katrine

  19. That is just tooo cooool!

  20. brinja Says:

    Katrine: Tusind tak for hjælp! Hvor rart med lidt info :) Jeg ender nok bare med at sættte en lampe ind i uret og bruge det på den måde. Go dag. B

    Ann: They were 400Danish kroner, witch is about 53Euro…

  22. Ann Says:

    Wow, that’s a great price :)

    Gorgeous! When they’re done, they will be amazing!

  24. lins Says:

    Are they heavy? Might be interesting as a coffee or side table.

  25. brinja Says:

    Lins: they are incredibly heavy. A coffee table might be the perfect idea? I’ll let you know. Thank you :)

  26. Kari Anne Says:
