Telechron Tidbit-- Hands:Before 1932, Telechron seems to have been unconcerned with consistency applied to hands.  You'll commonly see models carrying two different styles.   Don't be too concerned if you see a clock with different hands than you've seen on other examples of that clock.  Of course if you see a 30's clock with hands you know to be from the 50's, you might think twice about buying it.  Take a look at all the clocks and get a feel for what hands were used when and which were used for years and years.  The hands on the Bellevue above (Frech Trefoil style, I'm told) won't be seen on clocks later than '30 or '31.  However, the hands from the Luxor would appear on different models for twenty years.
