Hey Old Gassers,

I know nothing about clocks. Can anyone please help with this clock? Is it gas/oil? Is it from a dealership? Manufacturer of clock? Approximately what year is it from? Other than neon, is it missing anything?

I tried to research it and I'm thinking it's a Glo Dial because the clock face and hands, but the chrome ring is throwing me off. Looks like a Cleveland clock as well????

A few questions could probably be answered if I had it in my hand, but this one picture is all I have for now.

I am also looking for an approximate value (request posted in value section), if you have an idea.

Thank you all for your help. I’d like to get it bought.

-Steve

It’s a Glo Dial... Could have been used anywhere so make it what you like. As far as age my guess is late 40’s 50’s. I have the same clock. Jim

Thanks a lot for your help Jim. Is it missing any parts other than the neon and the glass plates? I’m just wondering what the glass plates would mount to? The walls seem shorter than the pics I found on line. Unless the neon is just supposed to be exposed on this version? Either way I’ll try to get it bought.

Thanks again for the help. I really appreciate it, Steve

Cool clock, too bad you dont know what the neon said. Probably have to pick something, if you jump on worthpoint.com and type in glo dial clocks it will show you some clock pictures (wont be able to see prices without a paid account). Apparently the neon was broke a lot on these! There's some bowling clocks in there, dealerships, etc. If you find another clock with the same stand-off locations, might be a match, maybe?

That mohawk clock is cool!!!

I believe the Robert K Lewis clocks were just Glo Dials... My clock also says Robert K Lewis.

Great. Thanks for the help. Looks like Robert K. Lewis might be the manufacturer and Glo-dial is the model or style?? Still working on getting this one.

Thanks to all of you for your input,
Steve
