I completed restoration of a General Electric 7H106K Illuminated Alarm Clock.  The back of the dial cleaned up nicely with melamine and water but the front yellowing could not be removed (seems to be UV / sunlight related damage). 


Some more photos


Cool clock. The yellowing can be reversed by bleaching. There are several different methods to do that. Search for bleach, peroxide or retrobrite to see a few.

Good looking clock  It's nice how such clocks can be attractive and useful.  Today it seems to be only about what's on the face.
