Greg Adams, Gary Biolchini and Bill Stoddard, with help from many others, are researching the history of Westclox and their clocks and watches. The purpose of this web site is to organize information and make it available to the public. We will add more as time permits. Jeffrey Wood and Richard Tjarks, both deceased, made major contributions.
Thanks to Jim LInz for the Telechron price and date information, and to Gary Biolchini for the Westclox price and date information.

"Models" is the central table of the database, and will have an entry for each model of clock and watch that I have time to enter.
A major table group in the database is "Documents", which store advertisements, product catalogs and parts and repair catalogs, etc.
The "Examples" tables store photos and information of examples of models.
The "Details" tables allow us to store variations of a model. My particular interest is dial, back and movement variations of Westclox Big Ben and Baby Ben alarm clocks. Many of the Big Ben and Baby Ben vafriations have been entered. The database has a "Patents" table, and so far I have entered 214 older patents and trademarks related to Westclox. Patents link to "Personnel", "Companies" and also to "Details".
