    Default Question on Vintage Car Clocks

    Hey guys,

    Looking to get pointed in the right direction from the crew here in the apparent dearth of information on the net. I am looking for information about vintage car clocks. Specifically, a friend has a key-wind clock made by the New Venus Car Clock Company. I don't have movement shots but can probably get them. He thinks it may have come from a Packard. Any insights to offer? TIA.

    Planning to do just that at Chapter 185. Was having trouble posting earlier today. Thanks for the reply.

    Most I've seen for Packard were Jaeger or Jaeger LeCoultre. Other cars would have Walthams. Oldsmobile put a self winding clock in the steering wheel which wound itself with the motion of the wheel.
