This is a 1941 "Dayton" calendar clock. Hammond seems to have hit paydirt with their "Gregory" Calendar clock so they continued to calendar clocks.
The clock and calendar functions are in perfect working order. The clock keeps excellent time and doesn't make any noise. It is not a self starter and has to be started. This clock lets you manipulate the day and date function by turning the knob on the far right beneath the "Start" knob, forward till it clicks and then back until it clicks. The minute hand is unique on this model, it features a curved hand then straightens near the end. The day and date windows appear on the bottom of the dial in what would be the "6" position.
The clock is in a Mahogany case and is 5.75 inches tall and 7.75 inches wide, it is 2 and 7/8ths inches in depth.
