Paul Feher's masterpiece art moderne cyclometer the Arlington from 1934. When marketed it sold for $62.50 it was the most expensive cyclometer Lawson produced.

To be in rough shape as it's case is in, it keeps perfect time and is quite. It retains its original cord and plug (see second picture).

The case is going to get a re-chroming and restored back to it's original beauty. There are two tones of chrome on it brown, and just plain chorme. It sets in my home office counting out the hours.

    I own this identical model and the case is Silver Plate! Can be a chore to keep shiny.

    Best regards on your find / thanks for the information.

    I thought about having it silverplated, but was told to have it re-chromed. There is a brown tinted chrome and a silver chrome. I love this clock as I am sure you love yours.
    You can buy some finisher to seal the silver so it doesn't tarnish.

    I have not been able to locate any literature that suggests it was ever even offered in Silver plate but it appears to be all original.

    Good luck hunting!
