The Gregory Bakelite case was available in two colors. The walnut version featured a yellow or gold-finished face with a gold second hand. The black version had a silver face with a green second hand. The hour and minute hands were black on both versions. Hammond produced more of the walnut/gold bakelite version than it did the black/silver bakelite version. Today, for reasons that are not clear, the black/silver version is quite common, while the walnut/gold is rare. I think the walnut/gold version is warmer than the black/siver one which seems cold and austere to me.
I have the black and silver one, so I had to get this one when it became available.
The clock is in excellent running order, no noise, and keeps perfect time, and date information. The bakelite case is in perfect shape, no fleabites, cracks, or chips. The cord was perfect on it also, I usually have to replace them. It stands about 7 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide by 3 inches deep.
