Description

This classic Tambour style desk clock originated from a request for a custom order for one of my desk clocks using a reverse movement, but without any name or call sign cut in it. This is the result of that request.

It's available with either a normal clockwise movement or a reverse movement (backwards or counter clockwise). A photo can also be made into a dial for this clock.

Each one is made from your choice of either OAK or PINE wood, with or without a clear coat finish. Please note that no stains are used the color shown is the natural color of the wood before and after the clear coats are applied. The clocks in this listing, the darker wood is OAK and the lighter color wood is PINE. The clear coat does darken the wood slightly.

They are available as an open face clock, with a choice of either RED or BLACK sweep second hands, or as a closed style with the optional curved glass brass bezel. Each one has four small felt feet on the bottom to protect the surface it's placed on.

Each clock is about 12" L x 3 1/2" W x 7" H, powered by a standard AA cell

Ordering information examples:

Rev BLK Sec W/Brass (Reverse movement, Black Second Hand, WITH Brass/Glass bezel)

Rev BLK Sec NO/Brass (Reverse Movement, Black Second Hand, OPEN FACE NO BRASS/GLASS BEZEL)

NOR BLK Sec NO/brass (Normal clockwise movement, Black Second Hand, OPEN FACE)

NOR BLK Sec W/Brass (Normal clockwise movement, Black Second Hands, WITH Brass/Glass bezel)

Shipping policies

USPS Priority Flat Rate, USPS Priority Mail or USPS First Class Mail is used for all shipping.

FED EX Shipping is an option that is not listed but is available.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS who opt for Fed Ex shipping.

BE AWARE that if you opt Fed Ex for shipping, that you WILL PROBABLY receive a bill from Fed Ex weeks after the delivery, for "CLEARANCE ENTRY FEES", "ADVANCEMENT FEES" and federal/state/and or local taxes. These charges can be almost or more than half the value if the order!

The "clearance entry fees and advancement fees" are fees that Fed Ex charges and keeps, I do not get one penny of them. These are called "brokerage fees" that the shipper charges the buyer. These fees are on top of the shipping fees for the order that you pay here. Neither myself nor Etsy has any control over these fees from Fed Ex.

Additional policies

If you would like a name or something else instead of call sign send me a message of your idea and I'll work with you to try to make it.
