Antique Clocks/Vintage Sessions advertising wall clock


We have an electric Sessions Studebaker wall clock with the last patent date on the clock back of 1936.  It measures 14-1/2" square and 3" in width.  I presume it's an advertising clock, "Studebaker" is written across the face beneath the dials and "Sessions" is at the top.  The clock has a silver metal case with decorative corners, with a 1/2" slanted rim around the clock.  large black numbers  and dial on the face.  The only other information on the piece is on the back of the clock casing.  It says "The Sessions Clock Company. Forestville, Conn., Model 5 W.  It is in very good condition and still keeps time.  I am unable to find anything like it on Ebay or anywhere else.  I was wondering what it might be worth.  Is it rare or just not worth fiddling with?  We found it some years ago, and now a friend wants to buy it.

did you see this one?:

went for $185 --this is the only one I found quite similar --just different advertising
