How to Indentify your Westclox timepiece.
Before you begin your search for the
identification of your Westclox timepiece, there are some
simple things you need to check to help speed up the
- TYPE: Is your timepiece a clock
or watch? Sometimes a large watch or small clock
can be incorrectly indentified. If unsure, check
under both Clocks and Watches or use the search
option. If it does not fall under those 2 types,
please check under miscellaneous or all.
- CATEGORY: Is your timepiece time
only or is it an alarm clock? If you are not
familiar with the item and it is not running it
may be difficult to tell.
- MECHANISM: Is your timepiece a
wind-up, electric or battery run?.
- USE: Is your timepiece made to
hang on the wall, sit on a desk, made for an
automobile or other?
- MODEL: What is the name and
model on the dial of the timepiece. For example,
most (if not all) Big Ben alarm clocks are marked
both Westclox and Big Ben on the dial. If you
cannot find a model name on the dial, then look
very closely at the back of the clock. Many of
them have the name stamped on the back. You may
have to look very close with good lighting to
find the model. This can help reduce the number
of timepieces to look at, dramatically.
- PATENT#: Are there any patent
numbers on your timepiece? These can be very
helpful. Using the search feature with a patent#
may find a quick match.
You do not have to know all of these things but the
more you know, the easier it will be to find information
about your timepiece. Once you have as much information
that you can find, click on one of the links of the menu
at the top.
If you want, you can try to search this site with the
information that you have, but it may result in excessive
results if the information is too vague.
