Street Clock Two Dial Historical

Two Dial Street Clock – located in front of our 1940’s factory

Electric Time offers a variety of Street Clock Styles. Clocks are available with LED backlighting or edge lighting. A wide range of standard dial markings and hands along with special dial lettering and graphics are available.

Since 1918 Service & Support – Electric Time has been manufacturing street clocks since Henry Warren’s original electric clock patent of 1918. Electric Time can still fix products more than 80 years old. No other firm in almost any industry can offer this service.

Cast in Aluminum – Our street clocks are made of aluminum not fiberglass. Aluminum provides a stronger, sturdier clock that is not likely to need any repairs or upkeep. The aluminum clock will be around for 100 years+. We find fiberglass is a less expensive medium for both patterns and parts, but not one we prefer for our post clocks.

Integrated Manufacturing Electric Time manufactures the clock movements, the clock controller and the entire clock. We can provide parts for your clock, whether it is two, twenty or eighty years old. Our clock movements are made of brass and stainless steel; they will not rust and will provide decades of reliable operation.

Raised Lettering – Unique in the industry, Electric Time Company provides raised 3/16″ thick aluminum letters on all headers and saddles. We do not use vinyl or stick on plastic.

Tempered Glass Crystals – We provide clear tempered glass crystals to protect the faces on our street clocks. This is the same glass as used in the side windows on your car; it will never yellow. We do not recommend polycarbonate (Lexan) as it will yellow in a relatively short time. If you are in an area with vandalism problems, we can provide an alternative material.

Quality Finish – We apply a quality paint system made by PPG, the world’s leading coating manufacturer, on your street clock. The paint system consists of four parts:

  • Acid etch primer over the base casting
  • Catalyzed polyurethane paint applied in three steps:
    • Base color
    • Highlighting color
    • Sealer for protection

This paint system has been tested by an internationally known paint testing lab for weathering, light stability and corrosion. Test results are available upon request.
