Update!
Jheilman has helped me out a lot with better source images, and now I can't leave well alone. I've been mulling over whether to update my clocks. I found this site which has a lot of old clock catalog images. Most of them are just 'similar' to the ones on the map, but I think the rectangular clock may be an exact match! The alarm clock is also very close.
I'm still trying to mangle the images to get that crappy photocopied look, but here's what I have come up with, next to the best source images I have. I haven't tried printing them yet though. I'm not sure if I prefer these boring catalog clocks to the 'more interesting' ones I started with.

I don’t understand why your bothering to update the clock panels yet there are at least two big features on your map that are totally inaccurate yet you refuse to redo them.

Great clock research. I agree about the bottom clock. Thought it was a pocket watch for years, but a few details didn't make sense. I have updated mine to a desktop clock with feet and at a slight angle to show the clock body as seen in vintage Sears catalog pics. Awesome find for clock 2!! The second biggest clock mystery IMHO. I'm looking through that site you linked, but do you have a link to the page with the clock you think is the best match? That will probably be a new update I make.

Hello again! Just a little update I thought I'd share... The Facebook post I'd shared on the Randall Costume made its way to both Michael Palin, and Mike Edmonds (Og) so now my boy is in receipt of signed photos of them both. Here's a pic of him and your map merlinb with the many photos of Mike Edmonds in his various characters

Missesp86 - wow, that is so awesome! I want signed photos from Og.
I don't blame you! Honestly Mike Edmonds is such a lovely guy we ebeded up having a chat on messenger and he added me as a friend, total legend. He's actually been in an award winning feature film Documentary during the Independent London film festival called "Under the Radar" it was all about his life and career, really interesting how he managed to land the roles he's had. Well worth a watch if you can find it online. I know the film maker is called Simon J Frith
