I found this Atlas clock at Brimfield Mass several years ago just as I like to find clocks- crusty, not working, and completely unmolested. I put in a new clock mech, transformer and neon. I actually didnt mind the ad face as it was with the peeling paint, but with neon it gets a little "harsh" to look at with the white clock face and the exposed tube. So I ordered the repro face from petrorelics and swapped it out. In my opinion, it makes it warmer and easier on the eyes. The blue on the repro was WAY off/lighter in color vs the original, but not a lot of options out there for parts.

I think it looks great I would have replaced it also. No one will know the color difference but you. Nice find
