1936-39 Telechron Model 8B07 Baron Cyclometer was available with:
Black molded plastic case, maroon base, chrome plated escutcheon, and maroon band (pictured).
Brown plastic case and base, brass escutcheon, and ivory band.
Ivory case, maroon base, polished chrome escutcheon and maroon band.
The Ivory is the rarest, with the black being second rarest. The Brown is the most common.
The clock was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. The dials are ivory with black characters. The brown and black models were introduced in 1936, the Ivory in 1937. All were discontinued in 1939, however a few were shipped from stock after the war. There were 26,226 sold according to company records.
This clock is quite and runs and keeps great time. The case is in great shape, and the plug looks original but the cord has been replaced.
