Do you also get the soup? Excuse me, soupe?
What exactly makes these exploding though?
It’s a reference to an earlier story about those “400-day” anniversary clocks. Apparently there have been some spontaneous releases of their mainsprings, breaking the clock’s glass dome and causing damage/injuries. The take-away from that article was that you should not try to actually squeeze 400 days of operation out of it by winding it up all the way.
I am pretty sure the Roger Wood clocks are OK, though. The headline was a joke, OK?
