I’m trying to get information on this clock I’m getting . How does face come off to get to inside without destroying cover ? It seems to be plastic . Are parts available anywhere and what’s the value of this ? As you can see it still working been up there since 1956 Thanks I’m taking it down Friday,
take the marquee off first (seven bros.service sta.) then the round plastic face cover has screws all the way around the diameter - that will get you too the face of the clock, parts are available.. value: in the 1500.+ neighborhood .. ...

The rusty metal bezel has screws around the perimeter. Remove those and the bezel, the plastic will come off. The face pan can be lifted off then. After unhooking the electrical conduit, the lift upward on the clock can to remove it from it's hanger that will be bolted to the wall.
Jim at Petro Relics has every part you will need.
I'm interested to see what's under the Seven Brothers stickers.
Are you asking how it comes apart as part of your planned restoration or to get it off the wall? It's probably not bolted/screwed through. These clocks had inverted "V" hangers on the back and usually just lift up and off. Once you get the electrical conduit disconnected, you shouldn't have to take it apart any further to get it off the wall. If you're asking for restoration purposes, the above comments are spot on...I'll only add that the hands then come off with simple large nuts and the face lifts out to give access to the mechanism. Good luck!! Cool Clock.
Thanks, Not sure if I’m Restoring it it works just interested in figuring how it would come off the wall . I thought it was bolted through back can . It’s been up there since 1956 and my buddy is retiring and selling the building and doesn’t want to see it get destroyed by new owners. It’ll hang in my garage to honor his family .
