The clock on the wall continues to count down time, as one minute rolls into the next and every sixty of them commemorates the passing of another hour.
Officials associated with the clock have not had contact with it since it left their factory many years ago. It is believed that current clock factory leadership has changed sufficiently since that time so as to be completely unaware of the particular clock on the wall.
Previously, the clock had been designated for decommissioning, being replaced by a newer “virtual” clock, although plans ultimately changed. The older “real” clock was intended to be dismantled and sold for parts. Component pieces had been destined for the local second-hand store, and also an hour-hand store, a minute-hand store, a face store, and other, lesser-known stores.
