It took us quite a while to find a suitable clock for our caravan.
We run our lives by the clock, it helps get me out of bed in the morning, and reminds me when it is time to reverse the process. It also frequently tells me that it is not yet time to eat, but that it may be time to chill the wine!
Caravan time is slightly different to normal time, for the minutes become less relevant as indeed do the hours. However days are sometimes important, especially site moving days. This means that accuracy is important for we do need to be confident that our timepiece at least displays the correct day of the week, so a radio-controlled model was considered highly desirable.
It helps if we can actually see the information that the clock is displaying, otherwise there is little point in having one! I suppose we could have bought a talking clock but that would soon get as tedious as a cuckoo announcing the hours. We thought a good compromise would be to have a large clock, without a tick; one large enough to allow reading from one’s normal sedentary position of rest.
It even tells us what the moon is doing and that the caravan is overheated. I think that it also has an alarm function, but that, of course is something that is completely irrelevant to caravan life.
These points, and indeed more, received careful consideration while we were searching for a timepiece for our caravan. The solution, for us, was found in the offering illustrated here from the far-east that has now been accurately serving us for over a year.
