3H83  The Melbourne

These began life green but over the years most have turned this orange-lime flavor.  Mine (above) looks more like some kind of fancy Italian marble than plastic.  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.
