Does the flip clock get dusty? How do I clean it? Do they rust?
Everything collects dust when left untouched. However, due to the blade flips every minute, the flip clock does not collect much dust. However, if you are
still concerned about dust, models that are covered with clear plastic, such as the FARTECH FC 011 or TWEMCO QT35, will be able to meet your needs.
Only the OEM clocks have metal material, which are generally made of stainless steel, we haven't seen them rust before.
Where are these flip clocks from?
They are made from different manufacturers. The movements are from R&D in Japan, Italy, Germany, while they are assembled in Italy, Hong Kong,
China. For more information, take a look at the specifications for each clock on the website.
Do the flip clocks run on batteries?
Yes, they do. There are flip clocks that are powered by AC, and some even allow synchronization with master & slave clocks. However, if you require
these, please drop us an email to enquire as they are not listed on our website.
How accurate are these flip clocks?
They are as accurate as normal mechanical clocks and serve the purpose of telling time. However, if you require better accuracy, you should consider
the higher-end FARTECH, the TWEMCO or the Solari series. With only a buffer of +/- 3-4 secs per month, TWEMCO & Solari clocks are commonly used
in banks and offices where there is no room for error in timekeeping.
Do the flip clocks glow at night?
Unfortunately, no. There aren't any in the market, with the exception of those in the 70's. Flip clocks are originally designed for industrial and public
purposes (e.g. in the airport) where light is present all the time.
