Illustration for article titled Thunderbird clock: Oppo review.

I’m bored and therefore reviewing random stuff I own, so here is a clock with a 1966 Thunderbird on it. My mom gifted it to me a while ago because how often do you find a clock with an orange ‘66 T-bird on it?


My impressions: While the clock face design is very cool, the clock itself is loud. Very loud. And it’s not a loud “tick tock” noise either. In fact, this clock doesn’t even make tick tock noises. Instead, it makes a loud, rattly buzzing noise that prevented me from sleeping, forcing me to relocate the clock to the bathroom. In the bathroom, the noise was bearable, so I thought my clock had found a good home... until it stopped working a little over a week later. It wasn’t even a used clock or anything like that...

The verdict: Cool design, absurdly crappy quality. Makes good wall art, but not much else.
