Double-dial advertising clocks copied

You see this piece in an online auction. You naturally assume the case is painted wood and never bother to ask the seller what the case is made of.

Surprise...this full size reproduction has a matte black plastic case. The clock faces are metal but the entire case is plastic. Don't be fooled by appearance. No question is too obvious or dumb when buying antiques without firsthand examination. Several versions of these new clocks are sold advertising different products.
