3H155 The Glamour
In an ebony plastic case, the "Glamour" is meant to be used where an occasional clock is desired.

All other numbers are indicated by good-size dots. Movement of the clock contains the self-starting synchronous Telechron motor. Suggested to retail at $4.95.
|I got this cookie at the flea market in 1999. The guy must have felt bad for me and gave it to me for a song. I think it was about 100 degrees that day and I was carrying around a sack of clocks like a sweaty Santa. I must have looked pretty bad. Or maybe he felt bad because the clock didn't work and he didn't tell me. I got the last laugh. As I was taking it off the shelf to repair, I dropped it and it started working. I still haven't as much as cleaned this clock. It does have its original black, rubber cord and white plug so common in the 40's.|
