Wood case Coca Cola advertising clock, 80 Clocks to choose from, ALL ON SALE, circa 1930’s in pristine condition, made by Selected Devices Co., New York, N.Y. Ten Advertising Clocks to choose from, This Clock is 16” square, 4” deep, has Mint original label. The original enamel paint dial is near mint. One small scratch between 7 and 8 that was touched up and no longer noticeable. This is not one of those new paper dials that are often glued to non Coca Cola clocks. The solid walnut case was professionally refinished years ago. I have lightly cleaned and waxed the case. It looks as good as new. There are a few small nicks in the case. These Selected Coca Cola clocks have recently increased to $700-800, even with non original movements.
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 case or dial. 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 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.
