2H59 The Wallwood
Just when I think there are no more surprises inside Telechrons, I buy one of these things (Five bucks!). Now a Telechron rotor running upright not only runs silently but virtually friction-free; all the parts are protected by a film of oil. The 2H59's movement, including the rotor, is rotated 90 degrees for NO REASON. I'd like to meet the dope who approved this design. Only a couple of minor changes and they could have had the movement right-side up. The rotor counts on having its oil at the bottom of the case much like a car gets it oil from the pan. The rotor was naturally at death's door by the time it came into my care. It wasn't the only disappointment: The clock's dial was is little more than tin foil and the crystal and numeral ring are plastic. Boooooo!
