  Dash clocks were usually electric by the mid-'30's. Some cars had clocks in the interior rearview mirror and they were usually wind ups. Since there are no numbers on your piece, it may have been the "clock delete" blank that someone in the past added the clock mechanism to.

  The blank is just a space filler, there were no extra gauges. If you didn't have the clock, you got the blank. They were usually mounted on the passenger side of the dashboard, sometimes on the glovebox lid,if there was a glovebox.

Good Call '31.  1936 looks to be spot on. Interesting piece and would agree it looks like an owner conversion. Below is a DELETE plate for '36 which is clearly the same as the "clock" shown.

I'm curious to know if the clock mechanism was a kit that was purchased separately. It sure looks like it was installed almost like a pro did it. I would think the clock guts must have been available to be purchased and installed in the blank after the fact.......any thoughts?
