Krups battery operated wall clock | ca. 1972 | UPDATE

Here is another Krups “electronic” wall clock identical in style but different in color than the one posted on June 19, 2012. The face is made of red plastic with white split circles serving as 12, 3, 6, and 9. The line that divides these circles is repeated to designate the other numbers on the clock face but in positive instead of negative. There is a circular transparent plastic covering over the face.  The clock is 7” (18cm) in diameter and 2” (5cm) tall.

The minute and hour hands are both made of silver metal. There is a circular transparent Perspex screen protecting the face. A large decorative white metallic screw sits on top of the face, which allows the time to be easily set. The case is made of white plastic and the mechanism is placed at the back. There is a large metallic hook on top of the casing so that the clock can be fixed to a wall. The original Krups label is present on the face and the clock is dated August, 1972, with ‘8 72’ stamped on the back.  The clock takes one C/R14 1.5V size battery.
