3H83  The Melbourne

The beauty of Argentine Onyx ls reproduced ln the Green Marblette case of the Telechron shown above. Case is 5 1/4; ln. high; 6 in. wide;
has 3 1/2-inch: dial with gold color metal bezel and hands. Self-starting synchronous electric movement that never fails. Makes a
handsome additlon to table or desk. Retail prlce $7.95.

These began life green but over the years most have turned this orange-lime flavor.  The dial is a shrunken version of that seen on the Congress.
 
 

Production of this model was suspended due to the War and never resumed.

 Our friend, AJC shares pics one of the rarest Telechrons ever.  Only 99 units sold in 1941 and 1942!  The 3H83S "Special" apparently came with cases from the Glamour.
