DESCRIPTION: Warren Telechron Co., Ashland, Mass., "Warren B. Master Clock", (No. 127 Frequency Clock) in a walnut case and silvered dial, 110v motor combined with quality spring movement. Spring movement moves the center hand backwards; electric movement moves it forward, c1925
CONDITION: Walnut case is refinished; balance is original & excellent. We ran this to be sure it worked. If the power company is producing 60 cycles per second, and the clock movement is wound and running, the large hand stays up on zero. Cord was disconnected after checking. It is inside the case. Note that you should attach cord and just plug it in; there is NO need to ever wind it again. An additional note is if you stop the pendulum and leave the electric motor running, it can strip off the "scape teeth' (something has to give). Henry Warren's invention and application of the concept was revolutionary. For additional info, see NAWCC Bulletin from 1991, 33, pg 374-395, article titled "Henry Warren and His Master Clocks."
