    Old alarm clock I just bought on eBay marked Western Germany. I haven't received it yet so I am using their descriptions/pictures. Their description says that the clock works, keeps good time and the alarm bell is clear and bright. Measures about 4” tall and the face is about 3” in diameter. On the face is a second hand on the bottom center and the alarm set in top center. There is also a G W below the center of the face. The writing on the back is stamped # 108 at the top. Does anyone know WHO the maker of this clock is ? I hope George Washington (GW) wasn't sleeping with a Hession ;-) I take it because of the W. Germany marking that it was made between 1947 to 1989 ? Is it a "good" mechanism/brand clock ? It was cheap--I needed a wind up clock--and it's probably better that a "CCC" (crappy clock from China) from Target/Walmart.

      I love the clock, however I wish to have advice on uploading a clock of my own, I can not seem to find the area where to upload the picture for "show and tell". I can state my title and description, however I only see "Select up to 4 images (photo taking tips)" and no actual option to upload the photo. I am sorry to state you with this but please help.

      MysteryClock--under "Select up to 4 images (photo taking tips)", it says "chose images". I downloaded the pictures of the clock off of eBay into my Pictures file. When you click CHOSE IMAGES, it opens a window of choices where to get the pictures. I chose Library which included Documents, videos, pictures, etc. I chose Pictures and I had labeled these with a good description so I could find them. Find the pix and click, then OK ( or equivalent). Then press CHOSE IMAGES again and repeat. Hope this helps :-/
