BIG XL BODET BT630 FLIP CLOCK SOLARI DATOR VALLE GIANT LOFT FLIP WALL CLOCK SHOWING TIME DATE MONTH

!!PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL stella.mortadella AUCTIONS!!

Up for auction there is this extremely stylish and decorative electromechanical giant vintage XXL loft wall flip clock, BODET, model BT630. Made in France. Very beautiful and straight design with a stylish brown case. This very big flip clock is really an amazing piece, not only because of its size. The display shows time, date and month. This amazing object is marked on its backside. It looks very similar to the wellknown Solari Dator or Cifra, both designed by Gino Valle. I googled the patent number, which is also on the backside, and I found the following informations:

This beautiful flip clock is really an amazing piece and in used but very, very good condition. Only marginal signs of wear, a very few fine and slight scratches,not worth to mention, looks like new. Very well-tended, near new condition. Free of any damages. Its surface is still super-glossy. 100% vintage object. This clock was made to be used as a slave clock, which was controlled by a master clock. So this clock does not work in this configuration, but there are slave clock impulsers available on ebay to solve this. Tested with a master clock and it is fully working. The clock is clean. Please see the detailed pictures. A very decorative object, stunning design, a real eyecatcher and a rare collectible. Very big, meassures 13 1/3 x 10 x 5"/ 34 x 25 x 13cm.

For those who deserve to be individual and distinct!

Here some additional information I found about this clock:

TIMEPIECE WITH AUTOMATIC CALENDAR

United States Patent 3834151
A timepiece has an automatic calendar with a correcting means that takes account of the months having less than 31 days, and leap years. The correcting means, and preferably also the timepiece itself, is electrically actuated, as by a battery carried by the timepiece. The month indicator of the calendar drives slowly rotating cams that close first electrical contacts on February 28, February 29, and the last day of each month having 30 days. The day of the month indicator is driven by mechanism that also turns relatively rapidly rotating cams once a day that close second electrical contacts at midnight. There are three pairs of first and second contacts in series with each other and with an electric motor or electromagnetic device; and the cams of the second contacts ensure that each pair of contacts will be closed the correcting means thus actuated, for an interval or a number of pulses sufficient to advance the day of the month indicator to skip one, two or three days at the end of each month having less than 31 days.


A real must have for every Design home,
I am sure you will love this amazing object!
