I think #1 for me.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I made a mistake, the 4th one is a duplicate. Here is the one that is missing.

#1, because the clock face is more symmetrical. However, the feet on the bottom look a little out of proportion - I would maybe look at making the bottom out of two layers, with the bottom one slightly larger than the upper, to give some "flow" to the assembly. Nice work, I'm sure that she'll be happy with it.

#1.. I'd be tempted to add a barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and just about any other "O"meter i could get my hands on
