When I saw this it surprised me, I always wondered what a tambour would look like with a digital read out, and there it was. This is a Pennwood Tambour Mantel Numechron Model 426, made between 1934-45, with an Adler Royal case. The numechron appears in a 1934 advertisement. The clock was designed by Peter Muller-Munk.

The clock does run, but hangs. It is 20.5 inches in length, 4.5 inches in depth, and 6.25 inches tall, and it came with operating instructions on the bottom. To me it is a very impressive numechron.
