  • Flip clock with advertising panel & lights

    I'm new here. I know nothing about flip clocks, the lingo, or brands. I started searching online for a clock that was in a local restaurant when I was a kid in the early 80s. I found nothing similar, but the search led me here.

    It was a wall clock that had a separate panel to the right of the clock that had ads for local businesses. My memory of it is pretty hazy, but I think the ad panels were somewhere around 6 inches wide by 4 inches tall. They flipped over every 30 seconds or minute. And it had lights that lit the ad panels. Probably neon. I honestly don't remember much about the clock itself. Anyone seen anything like that?

    The only thing I've seen like that can be seen in the movie below at about 1:20

      The one that comes to mind is called the Action Ad Clock (made by Electric Ad Clock Company) Comes in a couple configurations with the clock either on the left or right side. They show up on ebay occasionally. See the video below for the flip version in action.

          You mean something like this? This was mine, New Old Stock. I sold it though. It was too big and could use the funds to buy some smaller clocks :-)

              Yep, that was mine! Wow, did not expect to see that one come up for sale so quickly and especially not for such a price.....

              Good luck with that sale! Just for the record, it is actually unused, just tested. It was brand new in its original box when I received it.
