    Perpetual calendar with month,day, and date below dial. Rotating "tell tale" below hands shaft indicates power interruption.

    The Stanford Products, Ltd. was only in operation for about 18 months in 1931-1932. Owned by David Spector, the company was located on Mission Street in San Francisco and employed about 40 persons. This model, a similar one without the calendar feature, and most of the company's early production, was designed by William M. Brower.

      Underappreciated clock, similar to the Hammond Gregory. Is the movement a Hammond?

      These really are underappreciated, in my opinion.... Great skyscraper case design - actually about 1 1/2" taller than the Gregory - nice Deco dial, and a very simple and reliable movement. I've run them for extended periods with no trouble. It's not a Hammond movement, but Stanford's own creation with an open motor. The calendar element uses three rotating disks, not rollers like the Gregory.

      Hello

      I have one of these I bought on eBay about a month ago and will have to have it re-wired. As I live in Scotland, I will have to buy a suitable inverter that I can order via CLOCKS magazine. If I want to invest/collect American electric clocks I will need to go up a model so I can run multiple electric clocks safely and reliably. I love clocks like this because they give an additional, useful feature - a calendar.
