Another clock from my recent buy. Might need a little TLC. What do you know about it?

I need advice on this one. It is cleaning up well but the bezel section appears to be copper. The parts that are hidden are brass colored, however. (Second photo) do you think it is brass too. Should I keep polishing and find out? What do you think?

The bezel might have been gold plated. Copper was often used as an underlayment for gold.
