Why you should consider a german tide clock (over poor quality alternatives)
Like all products, there are well-made tide clocks and mass-produced tide clocks. The trouble with mass-produced products can be with quality and materials, which I think lets down the consumer due to the tide clock not been reliable. We recommend German-made tide clocks from Fischer who hand make tide clocks with high-quality parts. There is a reason they have been in business for over 100 years. Fischer has small factory with skills long term staff that make the casings from hand and assemble the quartz movements correctly.
