When this clock arrived it was damaged; the second hand had fallen off inside the clock and the neon holders were broken. Now ordinarily I would exclude such shipping damage info from an amazon review, as it's not really pertinent to the actual item. But since this was for an imminent birthday I decided to fix it rather than return it and this gave me an opportunity to see the construction and clock innards for myself.
Now as an object d'art item this clock looks okay - it's big and the silver chrome plastic outer looks metallic although it's not. The two outer powered neon tubes (inside is white, outside is red) are bright and uniform and the print on the USMC logo is clear. The clock itself is standard fare for low priced clocks - a single AA battery powers it and it's the kind of small clock mechanism you could buy for $5 at any craft store. I'm sure it'll keep time for years though.
The construction however is VERY cheap - a crude wooden shim holds the power inlet from the power block and it was very poorly put together. Hot glue was holding the neon clips on which would explain their failure, and a poor soldering job held together with electrical tape juiced the two neons, with the wiring just shoved in there. The USMC was a cardboard print not even lacquered or sealed - could've been done on a $50 inkjet printer probably.
So ultimately I fixed the clock and on the surface it looks fine but for a near $100 item I was expecting considerably better craftsmanship and really can't recommend based on its price.
It's a shame as had the clock cost under $50 I would've been more than happy with it.
