Coca Cola Advertising Clock, circa 1930, made by Selected Devices Co. New York, N.Y. Please read the full description. Original untouched metal dial, NO damage to the painted surface. Solid walnut wood frame, NO damage, refinished. Excellent label. Original dial, 13 1/2" square. The older electric movement no longer functions. I have saved the movement if you want it. The clock is now powered by a high torque, continuous sweep second hand quartz movement. Note that the long spade hands are correct size for the dial and can only be used with the High Torque movements. The movement operates on a single battery for one year, accurate to within a few seconds a month. No unsightly cord, no worries finding an electrical wall outlet. Clock case is 16" Square, 3 3/4" deep. See photos, they are part of the description.
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 1930, 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. See other Advertising Clocks.
