    1). It's not a winding key. It's an adjustment key. 2). The label clearly doesn't show the maker. It tells how to operate the clock.

    Hi, John. It would be helpful to know where you lived, if you hope to receive suggestions as to who might be able to work on your clock.

    Seiko Sonola transistor clock

    FYI, there are at least two of them on ebay right now. (One of them seems to be missing the dial. Be careful before bidding). Good luck with your search. John

    Help identify odd spin start mantel clock?

    Very interesting thread! Thanks to everyone who contributed. I had recently started a thread about a clock I own which has the same word "Electric" on the dial and the same movement. Les ("Eckmill") was very helpful in sharing information about Max Knobel and the clock movement/motor he...

    Unknown spin-start electric clock

    Hello. Does anyone have any idea what the make/model of this clock might be? The only identifying marks anywhere on it are "Electric" on the dial and the Retail value / guarantee sticker on the back, which mentions the Merchants Advertising Company of Adrian, Michigan. No markings at all on...

    Lackner neon clock from Cincinnati, Ohio

    Thanks, Harold! Good site for info! (Although it doesn't have my friend's particular model). But at least it provides general info about similar clocks by the same company. I appreciate it! Sincerely, John

    Lackner neon clock from Cincinnati, Ohio

    Hi, all. This clock belongs to a friend of mine who's not very savvy with a computer. He asked if I could post these pics here and see if anyone knows anything about this clock, such as the year it was made, etc. Thanks in advance! John

    Thanks, Americo, but just like the last person who responded before you, you're responding to a post that's over 3 years old and the question had already been answered by previous posts. But thanks again for your help.

    Hi, John. I agree with Steve--your clock appears to be the Aden model from 1935-37. A verrrrry tiny picture of it is shown on page 79 of Smiths Domestic Clocks by Barrie Smith, 2nd ed., 2008. Cheers,

    Name of this Forum, did anybody wonder?

    Hmm, not to be a spoilsport or anything, but I'm wondering why it wasn't called simply "Electric clocks"...? I mean, all of us regulars obviously know what "horology" means, but each and every layman or newbie coming to the forums might not. And, after all, the "Clocks General" forum is not...

    Tinker, you are responding to a post that's nearly 3 years old. And I'm guessing you didn't see that my question was already answered in the post from Eckmill (Les), right after the one you quoted. But thanks anyway!
