    Vista Analog Speakers

    I Need My Head Examining

    Obviously Big Ben is the largest four-faced chiming clock, but it's not a certified swiss chronometer and therefore is not worth much on the market and is unsellable...must be appointed by her majesty to, and as a unestimable value as a historical landmark.
