Large 18" diameter silver metal Coca Cola advertising clock, pristine condition, Please read the full description and view all photos they are part of the description. See other Advertising Clocks and over 60 restored Antique Clocks to choose from, This original clock has NO rust, NO dents, NO paint loss, NO touch-up, a small amount of paint around the back edge where the wall was painted around the clock. The old electric movement could not be repaired. It is now fitted with a new high torque Seiko quartz movement with no alterations to the metal case. It runs for one year on a single AA battery. Battery not included. Timekeeping is accurate to within a few seconds a month. The battery movement alleviates the unsightly electric cord hanging down the wall and limiting where you can hang it. The old non-working movement and hands are available if you want them .
The value in any good advertising item whether it be a clock, sign or tin is in CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION of the advertising. So see all the pictures of this clock. At the time this clocks was made they were inexpensive promotional items given to Grocery Stores and Beer distributors, etc. The original electric clock motors were designed to last for about 15-20 years if they were cleaned and the rotors were changed every 10 years, which was never done. They hung on the wall until they died and then disposed of, some were repaired with a new electric movement. Considering the age of this clock, Circa 1950, several movement changes would have been required. For those steadfast that an ORIGINAL working electric motor in this clock is indicative of value, you should stop and rethink your position on the subject. It is highly unlikely that any electric advertising clock that has been in use retains the original movement in working condition . See photos.
