1F312 Octagon Warehouse clock
« on: November 08, 2018, 03:42:28 PM »
I have a little addiction for the Telechron/GE wall/warehouse/school clocks however I find it very difficult to find much information about them.  Wood/metal/Bakelite/plastic and fiber cases, wood backed, or metal backed, same great works.  Does anyone know of a book or web sight I can go to to gain additional information?   My most recent is a 1F312 (photo attached) it's beat up and not very attractive but that is what my wife wanted.  Repaired internals and everything is working great.
I cannot imagine how the clockwork of the universe can exist without a clockmaker

All that I have found about the commercial clocks is on Pappy's web pages and at the back of the Linz book.  I have several models here.  There is a guy in the Detroit area who sold me a couple of commercial wall clocks and has several more that he has been trying to sell.  He keeps calling me asking if I am interested.  Here are some of his craigslist listings: https://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/atq/d/vintage-clocks/6695767174.html, https://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/atq/d/vintage-clocks/6715970302.html, https://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/atq/d/vintage-clocks/6731315706.html, and https://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/hsh/d/vintage-clock/6728967666.html.
