727 "The Alden" or "Bellwood"
CASE SIMILAR TO NO. 327. 3" IVORY ENAMEL DIAL AND ALARM MOVEMENT WITH ALARM HAND (First delivery approximately June 1, 1931)
black and white dealer shot of the Alden? No, Telechron would
just show a picture of Salisbury and say "This but with an alarm."
Even the illustration above shows the 327 but I'm always on the hunt for
Alden repair tip (this
goes for several of Alden's sister models): Telechron doesn't
give you much bezel material to bend over the crystal, font plate and dial.
And if you think you have plenty, it's because you're short on the other
side (D'oh!). If you ever manage to get it on, don't undo your work
by over-tightening the three inside case nuts. One extra twist on
those nuts and the bezel will be rattling around on the front of your clock
forever. Just tighten those things until the movement isn't loose
anymore and STOP!
Original cord tag from a 727. I don't know to what the "X" in the model number refers.
