I love all nautical things & really needed a clock, since I don't have any ships wheels, I thought it would be a good buy. Plus, I have a sailboat, lighthouse & roped piles all in the weathered white & navy color so I thought it would match nicely. It does, but I was disappointed that the clock doesn't have a face cover. I'm concerned with dust collecting on the hands, causing it to lose time. I guess this style clock wouldn't look right with a cover, but if I would have thought of this before purchasing, I probably wouldn't have purchased it. Also, your items are a little pricey, & I would expect the quality to be better, especially when I could have purchased this elsewhere., but since it was on sale here I purchased from you.
