I make myself in seven,
If I come after second
Then I precede
I can be closed or shut
I can be purple
In time I'm 120

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to puzzling! By putting two spaces after each line, you create a line break $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Dec 26 '16 at 18:03

I think it might be

/fɔː/

More specifically

Four, for, and fore

I make myself in seven,

In seven segment display, the number four is made up of four lines.

If I come after second
Then I precede

B is the second letter, and BEFORE means to precede.

I can be closed or shut

(Thanks @Mithrandir!) They can be written with a slanted top or an open top

I can be purple

The four ball in snooker is purple

In time I'm 120

4 is 120 degrees away from 12 on a clock

    $\begingroup$ This is correct. Think about how you write four for the missing line. $\endgroup$ – user32980 Dec 26 '16 at 18:08
