Retirement is a huge transition that deserves celebration and recognition. The traditional carriage clock invented in the 1800s under the reign of Napoleon was a customary retirement gift for years. Over time, it was replaced by a gold watch or other type of clock.
The retirement clock has become a token of appreciation for loyalty and time spent on the job. Changes in the workplace have meant fewer and fewer employees are staying at a job long-term. The retirement clock becomes more meaningful as it’s no longer the token gift for everyone.
In a fast-paced culture, the retirement clock acknowledges employees who give one of their most precious resources, their time, to make a company successful. Classy and traditional, an engraved clock is a wonderful appreciation gift for someone who dedicated their time to a successful career. Retirement clocks are customary milestone gifts.
