About: If you just want to know what time it is, check your cell phone. But if you want to feel connected to time in a more profound, philosophical sense, consider the grandfather clock. It's a tradition, an heirloom, a piece of family history that can be passed from generation to generation, says Paul Mancarella, president of De'S Jewelers. It's also a beautiful piece of furniture, not a dust collector sitting in the corner, he says. He carries two of the best lines, Howard Miller and Bulova, which feature hand-crafted cherry and oak cabinets, German-made movements, and a variety of chimes, including the Westminster, the Big Ben chime that everyone knows, he says. You can start your own family tradition for as little as $1,000, or you can set your kids up with a clock worth 10 times that. When you hear that chime it just fills the house, Mancarella says. It's a warm homey feeling you can always count on. And you can count on the helpful staff at De'S to help you find the perfect clock -- and to start your own family tradition.
