Three reasons why this is THE most common Telechron clock of all.
1) Came in two different
styles appealing to a wide audience.
2) They were produced for ten, long years.
3) Probably the most indestructable clocks ever to come out of Ashland. A solid block of
mahogany or a solid block of plexiglass.
here the same hands and numeral ring from the 4F65
mounted in a rectangle. What was the appeal? Was it the little,
brass feet? The plastic model has the distinction of being the only
Telechron in the 50-year line to have depreciated in value. It's
30 plus dollar price tag was prohibitive in the 50's but you wouldn't want
to pay half that now. The mahogany on the wooden model was stained
so dark, they could have hidden any wood under there (hmmmm.....)
There's more wood grain showing on the painted dial than anywhere else.
No luminous numbers, no light and no style. I give it a C+.
