Picked this Pennwood Numechron up today at a junk store, $3.00. There is no model number on it (inside or out) and I can't find a reference to it in 20th Century Modern Clocks: Desk, Shelf, or Decorative. It is 7.5 inches long, 4 inches tall, and 3.5 inches in depth. The wooden case is plain and in great condition, the clock runs quietly and keeps good time so far. The cord and the plug has been replaced. Another Pennwood Mystery clock when I Google Pennwood Numechron it brings up all the ones I have seen before except this one.

The advertisement copy for this clock from the 1939 issue of the L.C. Mayers Co. gift catalog.

This handsome case of solid walnut, rubbed to a glossy finish is very attractive. A clock that will add charm to any surroundings. Self-starting electric movement. Height 4 inches, Length 7 ½, inches, depth3 ½ inches. The case for this clock was designed by Peter Muller-Munk.

It sold for $9.50.

    That's a great find for $3! Looks to be in really terrific shape. Model is the "Chatham," from ca. 1939-40.
