CF769 The Sheriff or Constable
my Constable above. With luminous hands and numerals, he's
the Sheriff. It was the alarm version of the Usher.
These clocks were odd in that, despite their "campaign" model number, they
appeared in catalogs and brochures suggesting either they were more popular
than anticipated or somebody messed up the numbering. They do have
steel dials and really no corners have been cut that I could find.
these were only sold in black and ivory but you can find them in walnut
bakelite too. In late 1941 and early 1942, Telechron offered a lot
of walnut bakelite models (most in very limited quantities) and I think
these are from that time frame. The one above has a new, old stock case
I was lucky enough to snag off Ebay. The "noise holes" under the
set knobs, thinner than paper, aren't even punched out!
more kind of Constable to worry about. The hands and dial
AREN'T luminous, they just look it, and that is probably unique
to the walnut bakelite ones.
