Telechron & GE Clocks / The Cutest Telechron
« Last post by Larry on February 20, 2018, 07:35:36 PM »
In my (correct) opinion, the cutest Telechron model is the AB3F54 Little Hostess.  This model had been on my wish list for a while, and when one appeared last week for $28 (ebay link), I couldn't push the buttons quickly enough.  The clock arrived this evening, and it is in great condition (so far).  The cord may be original, but it is composed of two pieces, both near 6' long which were spliced together quite a few decades ago.  There is a round GE brown bakelite plug on the end.  On the inside of the back cover, someone scratched "GK-1-12-51  N - Motor", so I expect that someone with the initials "GK" replaced the rotor in Jan 1951.  It looks like the bezel has never been removed, so I need to try to be very careful before I start dealing with the bezel and dial (I am an expert as damaging dials).

What is the date code on the rotor?

Unfortunately, I put the rotor into a bag full of rotors, most of which are waiting to be serviced.  There are at least a few of that style in the bag, so I won't be able to tell which it was.  The rotor which is on the movement now has "625" stamped on it.  It is copper colored.

Re-adding this after it got deleted:

I recently obtained a service manual from 1965 with the following notes about rotor date codes:

"All rotors are date stamped to indicate period of manufacture. On rotors produced from 1950 the first and last numbers indicate the year and the number or numbers in between the month. For example; the stamping "845" would be interpreted as April 1958. On rotors produced prior to 1950 the first number indicates the year and the following numbers the month. For example; the stamping "84" might be interpreted as April, 1948."
