Hello All,

During the quest to restore our courthouse clock, I also ran across another clock that turns out to be a community mystery. I'm on a hunt to try and locate it and see if it can be put back in service, as the building is being restored.

Here is a picture of the clock. Seems it was removed sometime in the 70's and replaced with a time and temp "digital" clock. What is the make of this clock? Can anyone tell me anything about these clocks? Were they mechanical?

Here is a similar clock in NOLA (I found this on the web)

Any help would be appreciated here!

Thank you!
Scott

If you don't locate the original, Electric Time Corp. of Medfield (Mass.?) can probably help you. They have a website, and the president often posts, here. Keep us posted. Sounds like an interesting project. If the original was indeed a McClintock, they were electric, to the best of my knowledge.

Yahtzee!
It appears it is indeed a McClintock. Thank you! It does make sense that it would be electric, as well.

Now to find it!

Several days of research have turned up lots of conversations, including news from one of the people who is still alive whose family owned the bank.

The clock was removed sometime in the late 60's or very early 70's to make way for a Digital Time and Temp corner sign. It is being presumed that the McClintock was removed by the sign maker and was probably taken away to an undisclosed location. The sign maker, [FONT=&quot]American Sign and Indicator Corporation, has long since declared bankruptcy and closed their doors. Original founders have also since passed. So any records are presumed to have been destroyed along with the company.

So if anyone out there has seen a McClintock that says "Concord National Bank" on the bottom, please let me know. HA! :)[/FONT]

We do make reproductions for clients, I think your project would be a modified version of our 4 Dial McClintock Corner Mounted Clock.

The original clocks were typically copper over a steel frame, chances are if you do find it the clock has rotted away into nothing.


Please feel free to contact me at tde@electrictime.com if you would like additional information or a proposal.
