A recent eBay find. Sold as not working, but like many of these seldom used old-timers, with a little cleaning, a little lubrication, it now runs great! Dating to c. 1938, the Mars has a "walnut" Bakelite case with inlaid brass numerals/hr. markers, and a celuloid lens. Couple of numerals missing but should look great after restoration. Chapter ring is grooved like an old 78 record. Clock measures approx. 5" x 4.5" and is marked "New Haven Self Starting Bell Alarm."
