Could anyone tell me if these clocks are the real deal or some sort of repop? Thanks for any info, Tim. Ebay items 331501748216 and 361313857053

They both look good to me..

They did just reissue some PAM clocks so be very careful with those...

As far as I am aware, that Canadian White Rose is a fantasy clock. I have never seen one like that in any of the literature or in the numerous photos that I have seen of the stations. They did have one lighted round clock from the late 1940s which I have seen in a photo on the exterior of a White Rose station. Jim Williams did own a rough one which he featured in his White Rose/Enarco website, Jan. 2000 feature. It was sold when he disposed of his collection a few years back. If anyone knows of other authentic White Rose clocks I sure would like to hear about them. Cheers, Don.

Good info Don. Just to clarify, I know (or at least think!) that both of these clocks were vintage at one time, but sounds like the white rose was "rebranded" from something else. Maybe the other too. I have a clock with the same exact construction as the white rose but it's not branded white rose.

Thank everyone for your help. Don, I was lucky enough to get the same white rose version as Jim Williams from an old dealer in Collingwood Ontario except in yellow. Good to know that it is the only version you have seen also. Thanks again, Tim.
