Here's a nice blue
                  one.
 There's THREE interesting things in the picture above of a 1942 Patron.  First, you've got a new color; blue.  Second, you've got the bezel painted the same color as the case.  Lastly, you have the re-introduction of a braided rayon power cord. (G.E. insisted on rubber cords years earlier but Telechron was using them by 1940.)  Beauty!

 
 
It probably seemed like this to the thousands of factories put to work in the defense business.
