Putting together chosen clock parts provides one the joy of creating a distinct workable watch more or less from the ground up. Conventional and also specialty clock parts offer the do-it-yourselfer with a method to build clocks that exhibit all the features truly desired, both functional and cosmetic, and nothing extraneous.
The resulting timepieces are for all purposes, all seasons, and all occasions.Selecting clock components is an activity done by both hobbyists and clock stores. The latter might be curious about establishing a niche market for customers who can't find what they want off the shelf. The former could be making gifts or clocks for their own needs, and their motive may be to do something creative with their hands or to get a specialized function that would be or else unobtainable.
Such specialized parts extend temporal reporting in some way, furnish non-temporal and/or quasi-temporal data, or serve as novelties. Large clock manufacturers tend to shy away from these specialties because of the limited demand. The individual thus usually needs to tackle the task himself if he desires a particular special function.
