This Synchromatic Time Recorder (mid 1800’s) is my favorite time recorder. I have a background in engineering along with some machine shop experience. I appreciate well engineered mechanisms. All my favorite clocks are large, well engineered clocks. As such, time recorders are probably my favorite type of clock.
I love the huge movements installed in these machines and the time recording mechanisms are always intriguing. I have yet to find one that disappoints. The downside is that they are not always the most attractive clocks to have on display in the home.
