1970's Kirsch Hamilton Aurora Clock with Original Box



A vintage 1970's aluminium Aurora clock by Kirsch/Hamilton of Cambridge, Mass. This example has the original box and instruction booklet and the serial number in the booklet matches that on the clock bottom. The booklet is dated 1979. The clock appears to have been repaired at some point, as the cord is in great condition. Hard to imagine its original but it looks like the others I've had. The lenses or filters have a bit of wear and marks, please see the detailed photos. The back plate is original but 2 of the magnets are missing. It is in running nicely and is in nice condition, with some minor scratches to the case, easily polished out as the case is solid aluminium. Please see the attached video! This is an early version in an aluminium case. We have replaced the #93 bulb with an LED light to reduce heat.
