Tat's the case with the Witches Alarm Clock. Strange happenings occur when the clock is disturbed, as reported in the story from Listverse. Makes for an interesting tale, to say the least.
The Witch’s Alarm Clock.

Near the Accademia Museum in the Dorsoduro District, there is something rather odd on the side of an old building. It is nothing but a centuries-old alarm clock. This has raised hundreds of theories as to why it is there, but not one has been agreed on.
The legend goes that an old witch used the clock to mark the time that invoices were due. When she died, no one wanted to live in the house due to their fear of the witch. A nearby merchant asked some workers to put an old alarm clock on the supposedly haunted building as a joke.
When the clock was taken down a few years later, strange things started happening, such as visions and strange sounds during the night. As soon as the clock was put back up, everything went back to normal.
Years later, the clock was taken down again. The odd happenings resumed, including unexplained disappearances of objects and accidents happening around the site. The clock was once again replaced, and these strange events ceased.
The clock was never taken down again. Now it can be found on the side of a house on the Calle della Toletta street in Venice.
Like I said, these types of things happen all over the world. Strange but true!
Coffee out on the patio this morning. I'm hoping the rain has moved on.
