APRIL 1935 HERMAN LUX PATENTED COMBINED CLOCK CASE & DIAL ~ MYSTERY TAPE MEASURE ROTARY CLOCK!
Thisis avery niceestate find...the combined clock case and dial design was patented by Herman Lux in April of 1935 and marketed in two sizes. The larger 5" wide size is the more common...the smaller 3" wide the rarer and more hard to find. Ourexample is thelarger variety. They were made in several colors and our example has atan or beigeenameled finish on tin or pressed steel. Asyou can see in our posted photographs,there is minor general age wear to the finish, but it is still in very nice condition.The tape measure style dial is still quite clear and easy to read. The bottomshows the patent number of D-95.184...the same number appeared on both sizes. After many years in storage with our estate holders collection, when wound, the clock started right up and has continued to run. Accuracy was not determined. According to Lux records, it contains a Lux 30 hour guaranteed non-over wind movement.Fixed key wind is in place. As with all of our estate timepieces and clocks, we highly recommend a professional cleaning, adjustments or requiredrepairs after shipment to you, for proper working accuracy.Measures in at 2 & 1/2" tall and about 5" wide. Ask questions if you have them...will be carefully packed and shipped promptly upon confirmation of your payment.
