Art Deco Pontiac Automobiles Executive Desk Clock

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This fabulous clock was made in very limited production for executives of Pontiac Motors. The 1930s mirrored clock was made by Crystal Bent Fyrart clocks, with a movement by the Waltham Watch Company. Made from a single piece of glass, the edges are beveled, the glass is bent to a right angle, and the face is mirrored, painted, and etched. The face features incredibly stylized numbers and hands, as well as the Pontiac Indian head logo. The body is in original condition, and shows minor edge wear. We have had the clock movement cleaned and serviced, and the clock keeps perfect time.
