100. ROCK AROUND THE RETRO CLOCK
A sleek, bedside alarm clock that harkens back to the atomic and space age. This 50s wind-up timepiece still keeps time and has a working alarm. A few loose plastic parts, but still a serviceable piece. It's got a noisy tick-tock mechanism though that won't allow you restful sleep. Japan made a lot of these streamlined, chrome-plated clocks and I am just lucky to get this artifact from the first half of the 20th century. You need a Time Machine to score one these days!
