This clock has an "auxiliary"
movement which keeps it approximately on time if the electricity fails.
Comments on above clock:
Since it does not have
the name "Telechron" on the dial it must have been made in December
1919 or earlier. Since it has no motor patents,
just "Patent Pending" it must have been made about November
1918 or earlier. If it were later, the name plate would have
the October 29, 1918 patent on it.
Early Telechron Table Clock
Warren Clock Company Tambour ca. 1924
Auxiliary Wall Clock, 12 inch dial and 16 inch case
This is a transition clock in that the
dial "Warren Clock Co.", while the motor nameplate says
"Warren Telechron Co." Thus the clock dates to around 1926,
the year the company's name was changed. Courtesy Richard C. Tjarks.
