The Hammond electric clocks were made in Chicago, Illinois in the 1930's. They are manual starting clock, in which you spin a knob to start the synchronous motor. Telechron had such good patent coverage on the self starting motor that it took time for other companies to market their own self starting electric clocks. Hammond never did.

    Nice set. The brown Modern Firefly on right very hard to come by.

    A Hammond clock is one of my favorite brands. I have not seen any of these models before...very nice!

    I have a Hammond Electric sort of like the first one but mine has day and date plus a little indicator that is either white or black to show day or night. Can anybody tell me about it. I traded an electric grocery store coffee grinder for it.
