In time kids won’t know what “flag-fall” refers to, just as they won’t know why you “dial” a phone number.
I bought this Jerger clock this somewhere around 1985.
It still works, which as far as I know is not true of ANYTHING else I owned at that time.
It’s still “genau” (accurate) and “gerauscharm” (silent, or more precisely, noise-poor), as the box proclaims. Yep, I’ve got the original box too.
I kinda hope it dies before I do.
