Antique 1937 New Haven Time Flip Clock All Original Art Deco Wood & Glass. The New Haven Time Flip Clock. It was the 1930s - The era of the Great Depression, when the New Haven Clock Company produced an early version of a true flip clock - the New Haven "Time Flip, " "Time at a Glance" clock. It would be another 30 years, the 1960s before other flip clocks made their way into the market.
At first glance this baby screams art deco, the design was based on transportation of the era, trains and planes. This clock is gorgeous the housing uses two types of wood, and a glass tube holding the movement in place.I was told this clock worked, so I plugged it in and ran it for 5 minutes, this baby worked and kept time for 5 minutes. I don't like to plug in these old electric clocks. I'm afraid they'll burn the house down. I wanted to put screws in the end to help hold the movement in place and the side cover on. But apparently it needs standoffs too attached side cover. I don't have standoffs, so I'm going to leave it as is. The dimensions are, 7¾ inches long, 3¾ inches wide and 3¾ inches high. These clocks are extremely rare. They were only made for two years 1937 - 1939. I've never seen one before and don't expect to ever see another one.
