Interested in a different starburst clock size, design or price range? Drop me a note - I have dozens of vintage starburst clocks waiting to be refurbished in a huge variety of designs and sizes. Let's find one just for you!


Here: A wonderful mid-century modern atomic wall clock, circa 1960s.

This is a Seth Thomas "Grandeur" model, their fabulous 1960s take on the then-contemporary George Nelson "Pixel" clock design.

Superb execution, with 32 spokes holding teak paddles of three sizes arranged to form three successive rings. The paddles swivel on their wire rods, enabling you to change the clock's look by creating different patterns (all flat, alternating flat, etc.)

The clock measures an impressive 25 1/2 inches in overall diameter, and 9 inches across the face. The dial is an original Seth Thomas with its black factory-imprinted hour markers and prestigious Seth Thomas brand name.

The rods and clock face have some age-related toning and spotting, as you can see in the photographs. The wood is in lovely condition! These images were created under brilliant studio lighting, and taken from a range of about 24 inches (the closeup of the face) up to 6 feet away (the overall view) and in between (side views.) This is much more light than is usual in a home, and much closer than anyone normally gets to one of these clocks after it's been hung on the wall to enjoy.

The clock works perfectly, and keeps perfect time. Designed originally as battery powered (there's no keyhole on the dial) it's been fitted with new hands that fit the brand new quartz movement. The movement runs accurately and silently on a single "AA" battery, easy to switch-out from the back side of the clock.

A new battery is included. Just pop it in, set the time, and hang the clock where you know everyone will see it.

You and your guests will *never* stop checking on the time!
