    Cool little clock we got from some family friends. I just love the aged look, so I keep it on my desk. My father couldn't get a correct power cord, so he added his own power supply to the back. I kinda wish he didn't, but it is what it is. At least it works, haha!

    Newest patent date on it is 1925.

      Your Dad's cord is safe and the clock is clearly an antique. Very nice!

      What is the model number on this clock, all I could make out is M1.

    3. Dr_Rambow Dr_Rambow, 9 years ago
      That is, in fact, the only thing there. Model M1. Have any insight you'd like to share? I'd love to hear anything you know about it.

      Hi Dr. Rambow - I believe your clock is a model 371 "Auburn." Sometimes you'll find the model number stamped on the base of the clock rather than on the ID tag. The 'M1' refers to the motor type. Only 2,311 of these were made between 1929-1930. They sold for $23 back then. Here are a couple of others:

      By sight front and back it appears to be a Model 371 or "Auburn" in what they term as chinese red. It was produced between 1929-30, 2,311 of them were sold I do not know why it is labeled M1. These clocks were also produced in Ivory, and apple. Neat clock and rare clock.

      Chadakoin is right about the rotor number, later on it would have probably been labeled 371M1 following the rest of telechrons labeling format.

      Very cool, didn't know it was a rare clock, just that it had "that look" that you can't just go out and buy. There were a few other clocks in the box from the family friends; this was the only one we kept (Because I fell in love with it).

      What do these go for?
    8. rlwindle rlwindle, 9 years ago
      About $75-80, you can still get rotor for them it the current one ever goes out. It will be rebuilt, but they run great, I replaced a number of them in my Telechrons.
