PRODUCT STORY
Time waits for no man--except great ones. Designed around vintage presidential stamps issued in 1938, this collector's clock is at once a time piece, a piece of history and a history lesson all in one handsome block. Each one-of-a-kind piece features 12 U.S. Presidents arranged chronologically from George Washington at 1 o'clock on a 1 cent stamp to John Adams at 2 o'clock, ticking all the way to Zachary Taylor on a 12 cent stamp at high noon. A highly original and lasting way to make time for American history. Limited edition. 20th century stamps featured have been cancelled and are not in circulation. Made in the USA.

Not my style, but I can see how stamp collectors would like this.

While this isn't something I'm interested in, I agree with Sanriobaby about the appeal to stamp collectors. Would be neat if this could be customized with your own stamps. I get a birthday card from my grandmother every year and I always save the card and envelope - would be neat to send the stamps in to the artist to be made into a clock.

It's cute! I love novel clock ideas and collect them. This one is a bit high in price but I think I'd give in eventually and buy :).

Not my style, but I can see its appeal to some and for some decor styles. Not bad! But a little pricey.

I simply don't understand paying that much for something they could create way...way...cheaper. These are not rare stamps...don't get it even as a stamp collector.

With a 3.99 clock kit, I could make one and personalize the stamp selection. Ridiculous price.

maybe for the stamp collector who has everything...but not for anyone else. Looks cheap, very expensive.

I thought it would be fun to participate in voting for possible new products but I'm so disappointed in reading the reviews written for product after product: "too expensive!", "can't believe it's made in China". No those 2 comments are never for the same product....does no one else see the correlation here?! If I worked for Uncommon Goods I'd be so disheartened that such an excellent idea like this is squandered by some people. How many retailers ever sincerely ask the consumers opinion?! If you want cheap products then I don't think this is the store for you. If you want quality, unique products often made in the USA by hard working artists then you're going to pay a higher pricetag to support this country. Unfortunately the frustration of reading comments in product reviews had severely discouraged my participation at least.

Nice idea, and I think it would be great for anyone who collects vintage items (not limited to stamps), or presidential items. I like the stamps featured in the image.

I like it A LOT but I would not pay for a clock for $70. Too much and I agree that I could make it.

Not for me, but would definitely buy it if had a friend who was a US History buff or stamp collector...It looks visually interesting from afar...

I don't know any stamp collectors, but this seems like a cool idea. Would be better if the wood used was reclaimed/recycled.
