Coca Cola Anniversary Clock

New postby Bill Kapp » Fri Mar 28, 2008 5:17 am

I've had this for about 40 years. I used to collect all sorts of Coca Cola stuff. Vending machines, trays, etc. I also have a 1930's 10 ft Marble Soda fountain and back bar.

My mother bought this for me at a collectible shop. I think it was a limited edition commemorating the company or possibly given for years of service. I saw it in a coke collectors book about 20 years ago but didn't write down the info. On the green board they told me that its plate # 1093. I have seen an old post of our host's that had a painted over coke dial.

As a clock I think it is a cheaper german mech. Says 0 jewels unadjusted.

Happy hunting,

Bill Kapp

I don't think its any cheaper than any of the others. Not many have jewels. Looks like it might need cleaned up and it will be a really nice clock.

Bill,

About 20 years ago, I had a local clock repairman replace the broken wire that attaches to the pendulum. It was oiled and cleaned at that time. I ran it for a few weeks to know that it was ok, and then pushed that lever that locks the pendulum in place. Most of the visible dirt is on the outside of the globe, tho I am sure some dust has gotten on the movement and the oil is probably now pretty stiff.

My wife always hates it when I get a new clock or watch, but when I want to unload something she always tells me she is in love with it. I am pretty clumsy but I imagine I can clean the globe. I am not going to run the clock, I don't want to know if it still works!

Happy hunting,
Bill Kapp
