The Bradford Exchange, a company specializing in high-quality keepsakes and fine gifts, recently released a John Deere-themed "Classic Times" wooden cuckoo clock that reveals a Diesel 720 tractor on the hour.

This limited edition timepiece pays tribute to the storied history of agricultural equipment maker John Deere, complete with a farm sculpture and a Dave Barnhouse tractor-landscape painting across the front of the hand-crafted clock.

Deere and Company has provided superior farm implements since its founder - John Deere - introduced the world to the first commercially viable steel plow in 1837. 

Now the corporation caters to commercial farmers, with combines, tractors, and Gator utility vehicles; construction companies, with new and used heavy equipment; residential users, with lawn mowers; and golf course-care professionals with golf course equipment.

The heirloom clock is also shaped into a classic green barn and features a 1956-era John Deere logo on the clock face.

Other Deere collectibles available from The Bradford Exchange online store include a model train set, a children's wooden toy pack and a miniature Halloween pumpkin-picking village store.
