View Full Version : 1950 and 51 Commander differences in the clock?

06-17-2016, 07:23 PM
I was looking for a clock for my 51 and someone has this one? I assume it is from a 50? The second picture is my delete. Can the 50 lens and guts fit into the 51 bezel. The 50 looks deeper and I am not sure if it has a smaller diameter where the lens fits.

The clock in the upper photo I believe is from a 1952 Commander, they had a deeper bezel than the 51's. The center piece is the same.

I have many of the 1950 to 1951 Commander Clocks. The only difference is the Black and Red center. This is from a visual prospective

I also have a nice 1951 Commander clock that I'd trade for a 1950 clock, or just the center part if in nice condition.
