Just because a clock is rustic farmhouse, doesn't mean it has to be primitive. Take for instance accuracy - Goathopper wall clocks are razor tight and run ±1 seconds a day. Compare that with a Rolex watch where ±4 - 6 seconds a day is considered acceptable. Another factor important to many a wall clock buyer is noise or lack thereof.
Ticking and tocking may be great for nursery rhymes but for many, it's irritating and bothersome. Our wall clocks are quiet as a melancholy cat. Only until one places their ear right against the clock can a slight pulse be heard. The Goathopper has always claimed his clocks should be attractive, tough as a battleship, accurate and keep its mouth shut.
