7H101  The Imp

A bell-type alarm clock in a molded case.  Choice of three mottled colors:—Ivory, Rose and Brown.  Its double BEZEL is of polished metal.  The 3" square DIAL has a cream background and brown characters.  The MOVEMENT contains the standard, self-starting Telechron motor, with all the patented features that insure quiet, long life.  Telechron Clocks are approved by the Underwriters' Laboratories under the re-examination service, and are supplied with all-rubber cords.

HEIGHT 4 5/16" WIDTH 4 5/8" DEPTH 2 7/8"

This is probably the hardest of all Telechrons to find in perfect shape except maybe for the Electrolarm (gold trim) or the Satellite (silvering).  The case is nearly always chipped.  The guts of this clock are from the Guest .
Production of this model was suspended due to the War but resumed afterward.

A pre-War, brown Imp, now brown-green.  The bronze-colored back may be close to the original color.  When I got the clock, it was missing the set shaft.  The pinion, set spring and collar were all rattling around inside.  Luckily, I had just what I needed in the parts box.  That and a new cord were all the clock needed.  No chips or cracks-- not bad for $2.50.  Incedentally, there was a date on the inside of the case of Feb 17, 1941.  Unfortunately, I took it right off during cleaning.
