THIS ORIGINAL CLOCK HAS JUST HAD A COMPLETE MECHANICAL RESTORATION BY A PROFESSIONAL HOROLOGIST- IT HAS BEEN SONIC CLEANED, OILED AND HAD ALL BUSHINGS REPLACED. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL STORE CLOCK, NOT A REPRODUCTION. These were given to stores as promotional items by companies to help advertise and sell their products.
Attention Coke/Gilbert and Country store collectors - Here we have a 1924 Gilbert Store Advertising Clock with the paper dial marked Winsted, CT. The case is solid oak and has been refinished. There is a torn and mostly unreadable Gilbert label on the back. I have removed the face to examine the movement, which is the original Gilbert and the hands appear to be original, the glass in front appears to be replacement. The Coca Dial is original and in great shape.
The clock does run and ticks nicely and keeps accurate time on an 8-day movement. It is "time only", which means it was never intended to gong. There is a prior service tag on the inside of the door indicating the clock was cleaned or repaired in 1995. Our restoration was completed in May 2013 - Makes a great wall hanger for the man cave. . Plenty of more pix and questions promptly answered. We try to provide the most honest descriptions that we can - everyone hates negative surprises - but it is still a great early advertising piece .
