Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: 2HX16 New Chef

My 2F04 has an aluminum back cover, while the cover on the 2HX16 is painted steel.

It could be that Telechron was trying to make use of a stock of back covers with big round holes in them.

BTW, the movement on this clock attaches to the case with two screws, and the bezel tabs are inserted through slots in the case, very much like the Kitcheguide.

I wonder what the story was behind the back.  Were they all stamped 2F04 and they had to remove all that? Seems an extreme measure.  Plus we know they re-struck model numbers when they had to (7F72 to7F74 comes to mind).

Telechron & GE Clocks / 2HX16 New Chef

I won this auction: ebay link a few days ago, and I picked up the clock from the seller, who is a couple of miles from here, tonight.  The clock is in fair-good condition, but the case should probably be repainted, and two of the four tabs which hold the bezel to the case are broken off.  The back cover is different than any I have seen.  There is a large round hole in it and a round stiff piece of black paper held over the hole with four rivets.  The usual Telechron name, model number, etc. is stamped into the paper.  Some very sloppily soldered a thick inappropriate power cord to the coil terminals.  The dial face is probably much darker than it was originally, but the discoloration is mostly consistent, so it will hopefully be able to stay as it is without my removing the numbers and markings.

In the past year episodes of the 1950s TV police series San Francisco Beat (Also called The Lineup) have shown up on YouTube. Great views of old SF and old cars. There is a Telechron or GE clock in the first minute or so of this episode:

Telechron & GE Clocks / Re: 2H11 Café
« Last post by Larry on January 17, 2018, 09:30:57 AM »
Yesterday, I received yet another Cafe, this one in the uncommon color of red: ebay link.  Fortunately, at the time I saw this on ebay, there was an NOS replacement crystal listed on ebay, and I managed to get it for a total of $10.49.  The replacement crystal might be very slightly smaller than the original, but it works well.  The red Cafe had apparently been dismantled and thoroughly cleaned at some point, but I didn't find any trace of oil in the movement.  I cleaned it a bit and oiled it.  The case is in near mint condition with some minor dents and scratches in the metal trim pieces.  I now have four nice looking 2H11 Cafess in my collection.

I hung the clock on my living room wall, displacing the 1H1615.  I still need to find a 1/4 ball catch for the door.

Here is a picture of this Buffet next to my green Cafe.  You can see a color difference.  The Cafe looks greener.
