        I am looking for a 50 Commander clock and I would like to know specifically how does one know that one is buying the right thing ?
        Is there a model # stamped on it or a specific size to it ?...thanks, John

            There are usually a date stamp in black ink on the back of most Stude clocks from Borg. Many are faded, but that is the best way to tell for which year they were made.

            This is a NOS '59 Lark clock, but this is what the date stamp looks like:

              Well, the most obvious way to know it's correct is that it looks like the '50 clock pictured above. It's the only one that looks like the picture that also fits the hole in your dash.

              The only other clocks that would fit the hole would be the '51-'52 but they both have "cross-hairs" over a red thingy in the middle instead of the "bullet".

              Good luck.

                      Obviously neither of these eBay sellers understands the term CASO and how strongly/firmly/staunchly embraced the term actually is.

                      The 51 and 52 clocks are the same except for the red "cross hair" center. The 50 Commander dash clock blank off plate has the correct "spear and ring" center, so maybe a 51-52 clock and a 50 blank off could get together and make a correct 50 clock.

                      It's very common for the luminous paint on these clocks to lose their "glow." You can tell by looking at them if the numbers and hands appear rusty or orange colored.

                        I have a small NOS clock that I bought just for the bezel. It was still in the box and looks like it was never installed. It is the small one used on the Champion model and goes in a 51. I don't know if it's the same one that is used in the 50 Champion. I know the bezels are completely different. I will be swapping it out for a small Tach and am willing to sell it if someone is interested. It is the clock only. Send me a pm with an offer if you are interested. I certainly understand the term CASO and do not expect anything near what they wanted for the ones on e-bay.

                          Gee, $450 or $600 buy it now. I like real auctions rather than a set price. A lot of these guys just relist over and over the same high price hoping it will sell. Oh well -- at least I know they're out there. I shall wait for something closer to the $100 range though.

                              You might send Roy Valdez a PM. He has a lot of bullet-nose stuff.
