When the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum needed a clock at the entrance to their new Time and Navigation Exhibition, Electric Time Company was selected. Clear clock hands, edged in gold, with gold tails, are featured on the entrance sign to the exhibit. Working with the creative designers at Capitol Exhibit Service of Virginia, we were given the task of supplying a working custom clock that integrates with animated features – planes, submarines, etc.
From the Air & Space Museum’s The Daily Planet - "If you want to know where you are, or if you want to know where you're going, you need a reliable clock," said Carlene Stephens, a curator at the National Museum of American History, which houses the Smithsonian's collection of clocks and contributed to the exhibit. Appropriately, visitors enter the exhibit by walking under a beautiful blue and gold clock, in the "spirit of the early and truly magnificent European clocks," says exhibit designer Heidi Eitel.

Electric Time Company was pleased to be selected by White & Borgognoni Architects, P.C. and Halverson Construction Co. as the tower clock restoration experts for the Union Station Clock Tower. Working with historic drawings discovered by White & Borgognoni Architects, P.C., and old postcards and photographs - Electric Time recreated the four dials of the historic clock tower. The silhouette style tower clocks are 8' in diameter and fabricated in aluminum with gold leafed numerals and hands. For accurate time keeping the tower clocks are controlled by a GPS receiver. A Westminster Chime and hour strike system was also provided.
The original 110’ tall clock tower was built in 1889 and removed in 1946. The current restoration and reconstruction was completed in March 2007. The restored Union Station is now a visitors center located across the street from the Abraham Lincoln Museum and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
