Okay! In my home, we have an antic alarm clock. I could say this is only the thing that my parents never throw it away due to their attachment with it. It has a roman numeral and 4 hands to denote hours, minutes, seconds, and alarm time. It is brown in color and got a stop alarm button on the top.

My father always used to remind us that, this clock he possess since he started college. He used to wake up early morning around 4 am to kick off his day. He had to wake up in order to distribute newspapers as a part-time job. He says the clock reminds him of the hard work he did in his life.

My grandfather had given a gift to my father upon passing the matriculation exam from which he also received the award in school. A few times that alarm clock was broken, but it was fixed at an expensive service charge.

Overall, my father believes that this clock is not only reminding about his diligence but also to encourage us to the importance of time and follow the schedule.
