331 "The Plymouth"
A small tambour Telechron with good looks that
match its unequaled accuracy. Mahogany case. A silver finish
dial 3 1/2" in diameter.
A solid block of walnut. They don't make 'em like that anymore. Come to think of it, they never made 'em like that! I know I should have gone for the "Spanish highlighted" look but I couldn't do it. The wood is gorgeous just the way it is, earning it a place right on top of my dresser. Besides, I have an original-looking Plymouth upstairs. (See below)
The finish doesn't look 1/10 as bad in real life as it does in this pic but I tried to capture the alligatored finish. This guy might be old enough to have a shellac, rather than a lacquer finish. The absence of a removable rear plug is another clue that this is an old piece.
