The "Communications Clock" was one of the only clocks Telechron made during the War.  The hour hand was geared for one revolution per day.  The red hand was designed to show Greenwich mean time but I don't know if it could be set without taking the clock apart.  (Anyone have one?)

Hi, I'm Pappy and this is my humble web page dedicated to America's "First and Favorite" electric clock.  Have fun, look around and check back often because I update this page whenever I can.
