American Shelf & Wall Clocks - Clock Label Printersv.2.0 March 2013
The following list of American Clock Label Printers is by no means complete, or even 100% accurate. I composed this list as a personal reference, but thought I would share the data I have compiled over the years from various sources for others to use as a guideline. It can be a useful reference for approximating the date of manufacture for clocks which have paper labels in them. If you have additional information you could share or corrections, please contact me and I will update the list. Please use at your own discretion.
