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.
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.
