Question of the Day: Who is Seth Thomas?


And why is his name on all the clocks? Now, before you say "huh?" take a look around at the clocks you pass by on a daily basis, at work, in stores, on tv shows, in movies, even in your home. Chances are, they will have an old-fashioned signature on the face, below the numeral 12 or above the 6, that reads "Seth Thomas." How the hell did this guy become the Bill Gates of clocks? Just wondering.

Thanks Mik. I actually got the picture off their website. The site says that Seth Thomas is America's oldest clockmaker. But still ... Sony Betamax is America's oldest home video technology, and how far did that get them?
