Well, it's not a Telechron, but it's still running in 2259.55 in "Star Trek into Darkness" (2013)... Pennwood or Numechron   ?-?

I am watching Star Trek Into Darkness now on EPIX.  The alarm sounds very electric/modern.  Since we know the Zephyr was not an alarm clock in 1933, I am thinking that Pottery Barn is still making replicas in 2259.

We can only hope...  At that time, although I'll be older, I'll be there to buy that alarming Zephyr replicant.  Btw, I went to a PB Factory Outlet last Sunday seeking more replicants.  Although I found 5 different units, none of them were worthy of purchase.

When did PB start selling replicants?

Finally, someone picked up on it...  it would be the shipdawg... (I examined the human replicants as well.... no purchase.)

Here is an oddball.  In the 1932 film Winner Take All, James Cagney plays a boxer.  In the boxing arena there is what looks like a Telechron round wall clock.  The script says "Telewatch" instead of Telechron.  Below it says Warren Watch & Clock Co., Ashland Mass.  It is shown several times.

What this country needs is a good $5 parts clock.

A guess?  Fear of trademark infringement lawsuit.

Suffer through the ad, if it plays,... for a good memory...  and a Telechron clock, to boot...

(Believe it or not, this Telechron clock face was the first thing I saw on my TV screen this morning at 5am... weird... news story, of course.  I went and found the promo clip.)

Either a Mantle or Radio Telechron. It's hard to tell cause it's a double exposure effect shot. The movie is "The Damned Don't Cry", starring Joan Crawford and David Brian. 1950.

At the Movies. 1B515 in 1964 Episode of "The Fugitive"

This scene lasts four or five seconds.  The clock is running and the indicated time plays a minor part in the plot. The episode is number 18 in the first season, "Where the Action Is", and the scene is about eight and a half minutes in.

WOW you got good eyes.  One of my favorite movies, BTW.  I also like the electrified hanging kerosene lamp.  I have two of them, myself; one in the dining room and one in the kitchen (my folks were big antiquers back in the day).

Here is an Airlux Lucite alarm clock. The movie is "Female on the Beach", 1955, starring Joan Crawford and Jeff Chandler. Apparently Joan Crawford's character is a late sleeper. It's a murder mystery and a good movie.

The film is "Humoresque" (1946). Starring  Joan Crawford, John Garfield and Oscar Levant. A young Robert Blake has a principal part in the film too. This is absolutely my favorite Joan Crawford film. The music in this film is as enjoyable as the picture itself.
I wonder why the clock/timer on the right has the reset flag window off-set near the 8 o'clock position. Probably because a reset flag is unnecessary on a minute timer.

The film is "It'a a Wondeful Life" (1946). Starring James Stewart and Donna Reed. That's Donna Reed in the foreground. I'm pretty sure that's a 4H90, Ridgefield on top of the piano.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but in "Man of Steel" (2013) there's a Telechron wall clock for a split second at 23:26, perhaps a 1H508 or 1H912...
