Handlebar mount clock?

Who has one and where did you buy it from? I've been looking at getting one and wonder how well built and reliable they are with regard to being waterproof.
Thanks.

I also have the stem nut mounted style. I bought it off EBay for about 1\2 the price of the previously suggested site. It's actually a lot better quality than I was expecting. Not real sure on the waterproof level but you can always pop the clock out of the base when you give her a bath if your worried about it. If you ride much after dark I suggest getting the illuminated model. I love mine!

Wifey bought mine for a gift from Fleabay. I think they were ~$26 for both the clock and the thermometer. They blend well with the speedo.

I had looked at getting one of these clocks a few years back. The local bike shop here had a few in the display case but they were all like $80 or more. Went cheap and ended up getting a nice digital wrist watch (water proof) from Walmart for like $12. I attached it to the handlebar over on the left side up near the handle grip. Works well and easy to see in that location. Lights up too. Not fancy but does the job and most people don't even notice it's there.

The ones pictured here look great. One thing folks might consider when purchasing a clock, you might instead get a gps...if that is something you are also on the fence about as they have a clock on them too. Just a thought.
