they are fine presents - but for the right prople. i have seen some who was totally crazy about it ... and some not.
this year i want to sell 3 of them as retro futuristic styled Sankyos for christmas. sadly i just finished 1 of them, so the other get back to boxes for sometimes to have some time to solder around
at last: yapp, for enthusiastics are they great gifts.
I agree with Sven. They're great gifts for the right person. I've given 3 clocks as gifts. One to my boss from the electronics shop he owned, and one to each of two friends. I think my boss appreciated it the most.
Thank god I don't build cuckoo clocks. The neighbors would complain every midnight!
