Matt: These antique clocks are so exquisite. When did you start collection them?
Graciela: My dad is the collector. He says antique clock never go out of fashion, and they are good investment as well.
Matt: He's good taste. By the way, seeing these clocks rings a bell for me. I read a news report in the China Post - antique clocks might contain mercury in their components, and the mercury could leak when the clocks get old!
Graciela: Really? I'd better have my dad call a clockmaker to take a look at our clocks and make sure everything's okay.
