Info on Whitehall Hammond "spin to start" Clock

Any Hammond clock collectors here? I have not seen this clock either on the active or completed auctions. The only other example was on a Hammond clock collectors collection. He said it was a Whitehall Hammond Diamond Alabaster. I'm not sure if that refers to the stone or the color. It has kept perfect time since I brought it home. Any idea of rarity or price? Hopefully my link works

Thanks,
Joe

movement is the standard spin start Hammond movement of the 1930's - nothing special

The case is different. if it is a white chalk textured/colored stone then it is real alabaster.

Since its unusual it could be worth anywhere from $25 to $300 depending on who's buying

Condition is important and cracks and chips seriously affect value
Life has become immeasurably better since I have chosen to stop taking it seriously.

Art Deco stuff is becoming more sought after. It's more of a style item than a clock though.
