The Warren Telechron, Model 4FO5, The Gracewood(I), 1936, the reason for the "(I)" is that the Warren Telechron people used the name Gracewood again in 1945.

This is a very Art Deco Mantle Clock, it is 5 and 7/8 inches tall, by 14 and 3/16 inches long and 3 and 1/8 inches in depth. The case is mahogany with a cherry base. It has a 4 and 1/2 metal dial with a moderne brass skeleton numeral bezel. It was designed by Jaques Bars and the company records show that 13,130 were sold.

This one has a gash just to the left of the dial (see second picture). The time set knob has been stripped. Whoever tried working on it went by the rule "lefty loosey, righty tighty" and probably stripped the knob. The correct rule to follow is the exact oppsite when working on some Telechrons. It runs beautifully and is quite. The cord and plug have been replaced which may explain the stripped time set knob.

    Doug,
    The marketed name for your clock is the "Yachtsman". "brings the tang of the ocean into your livingroom or den". It was produced from 1938-42, it originally sold for $17.50, company records show that there were 12,361 sold, current value is $75-85 in great condition. It has a mahogany tambor case, with mahogany dial with eight ships wheel spokes of lacquered bronze. Source "Electricfying Time Telechron and GE Clocks 1925-1955" by Jim Linz
