Coca-Cola Clocks: Signs Of The Times

by Daniel Wright

Throughout the civilized world, Coca-Cola advertising is incredibly well known and instantly identified. The company has for a very long time recognized that collectibles are a fine way to advertise among fans and those not yet devoted to their brand of soda. Items can be found to appeal to nearly any individual of any age and taste.

Some collect Coca-Cola clocks, signs, pins, sweatshirts and thousands of other memorabilia and objects both for their practical uses and for their logo. Their Christmas Santa appears on mugs, clothing and dozens of other objects and brings in sales year after year. Creation of this Santa in 1931 is believed to have popularized what we associate with how Santa looks.

Clocks with the Coca-Cola logo were originally made to be displayed in stores that sold the brand and many clocks also say "Sold Here". They were often given to store owners free of charge as an incentive to be used in the store. Some clocks were quite simple in design while others were more elaborate and incorporated things such as neon lighting. Some collectors find these neon clocks to be art and display them as such or they incorporate them into the decor of their home. Others like having a simple and practical timepiece that also incorporates a favorite brand.

In addition to the vintage and older Coca-Cola clocks, in more modern times all sorts of watches and clocks have been made and continue to be very popular items. They make perfect gifts for Coke aficionados of course, but many who don't have collections still have a fondness for the brand and enjoy even a single item. Clocks, after all, are imminently practical.

There are even pins made that are replicas of these Coca-Cola clocks, and people who specialize in pin collections and those who specifically collect advertising and logo clocks all seem to enjoy these attractive pins. They make excellent decorations for gift packages as well, and can hint at the kind of present inside to tease a collector.

Coca-Cola clocks may be either modern replicas or authentic vintage models. Either can be very valuable. New clocks containing sophisticated electronic chronometers and replicas of the old clocks may be just as expensive as the real vintage ones. They may even cost more at a sale or auction. The making of vintage replicas is a thriving business which sometimes provides an affordable alternative to the real thing.

Soda-Pop-Collectibles.com features vintage Coca-Cola clocks as well as many from Pepsi, Mountain Dew, 7UP, Hires Root Beer, and other soft drink makers. View our huge selection of vintage Coca-Cola advertising with new collectibles added every day.
