711  The Telalarm

ILLUMINATED DIAL ALARM CLOCK!  Illumination adjustable!  "Dura silver alloy" case, non-tarnishing finish.  Moulded black base.  Height 5", width 4-1/4", Depth 3".  The friendly glow of its illuminated dial--the dependability of its pleasant alarm; its uncanny accuracy--make this clock an outstanding value.  A design that "fits" anywhere.

My personal favorite clock and permanent bedside alarm.  This was Telechron's second big hit after the Cathedral.  I've fixed ten of these (does that make me a double Telalarm ace?) and although they're kinda awkward inside, I've come to love them.

Here's a 711 I fixed for somebody;  I forget who.  You can see the sweep hand stuck into the end of the B rotor so I could tell from across the room if it quit on me.  The drive wheel should be gently removed from the rear plate and cleaned (it was).  The most common cause of alarm failure (not including poor clocksmithing) is having the small teat on the hour wheel (front left in the pic) break off.  You can make an effective repair just braizing a tiny piece of brass stock in its stead.
