Coca Cola advertising clock, metal case with original maroon paint, 18" diameter, circa 1950’s in pristine condition. The Clock case was cleaned, waxed, NO damage, NO rust, NO touch-up, one small dent on the outside edge between 11 and 12. Rather hard to see and photograph. NO paint loss, the finish sparkles.
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 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 Circa 1950, 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, 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.
