Retro Flip Clocks for Sale

Flip clocks are awesome! If you were around in the 1960s or 1970s, this picture probably looks familiar. Flip clocks had digital displays, but not of the LED or LCD type that's common today. Rather, they featured an analog split flap display, as shown here.

Flips clocks can give a room a great retro look, so they are a choice accessory for home decor!

On this page you will find both new and old flip clocks for sale. There are many unique and unusual looking new flip clocks, but for a more realistic retro look, you might consider buying a real genuine vintage flip clock. Many of the old ones had alarm clocks with radios.... Some were right out of the Eames Era, Space Age Era, etc...

Keep reading for more tips about what to look for!

This wall flip clock is a popular choice! It's rather large - about 12" x 12" - and the date and time displays actually flip! The downside is that on months that don't have 31 days, you will have to manually reset the date, and the calendar year also has to be changed manually once a year.

If you're looking for a big flip clock for your wall, look no further!

Tips on Buying Flip Clocks on Ebay

Ebay is the best place to find vintage collectible flip clocks!

Below you will find a selection of current Ebay listings for flip clocks. Some are expensive, and some are very cheap. While I love getting a good deal on Ebay, here are some tips I've learned from my experience as a buyer on Ebay:

- Look closely at feedback. Look for comments about packing. Flip Clocks often have knobs and buttons that could easily break if not protected well. Look for a seller who appears to do a good job at packing.

- If not stated in the listing, ask the seller questions about the condition and function. Find out if the clock works, and if other features like the radio and alarm function work. Also, if there is a backlight, find out if that works.
