2H59  The Wallwood

This plaque clock is richly handsome.  Ginger spice finish with gold color floating numerals, deep black dial.  Or smart natural wood with black numerals.  Low cost.

Just when I think there are no more surprises inside Telechrons, I buy one of these things (Five bucks!).  Now a Telechron rotor running upright not only runs silently but virtually friction-free; all the parts are protected by a film of oil.  The 2H59's  movement, including the rotor,  is rotated 90 degrees for NO REASON.  I'd like to meet the dope who approved this design.  Only a couple of minor changes and they could have had the movement right-side up.  The rotor counts on having its oil at the bottom of the case much like a car gets it oil from the pan.  The rotor was naturally at death's door by the time it came into my care.  It wasn't the only disappointment:  The clock's dial was is little more than tin foil and the crystal and numeral ring are plastic.  Boooooo!
