"The electric clock killed the mechanical clock, and the quartz clock killed the electrical clock," Myers said. For Myers and his customers, a clock is a piece of history. These clocks don't need battery backup. Myers, 58, has a small workshop and storefront attached to his house at 104 N. Main St. in Boonsboro. He also sells clocks at a booth in the Emporium in Frederick. In his workshop, open Wednesday through Sunday, there is not a digital clock in sight. Clock owners usually find out about him the old-fashioned way, by word-of-mouth. Myers also makes old-fashioned house calls, traveling as far as the Washington area. He loved old clocks, and began collecting them. Eventually, Myers began repairing clocks full time. "People drove two hours to bring their clocks to me," he said. He collects clocks and pocket watches. Ten years ago, the couple moved to Boonsboro and Myers brought his clock repair business with him. For four years, Myers observed what Jones did, and for an additional three years, he honed his craft by repairing his own clocks.
