1936-39 Telechron Model 8B07 Baron Cyclometer was available with:
Black molded plastic case, maroon base, chrome plated escutcheon, and maroon band (pictured).
Brown plastic case and base, brass escutcheon, and ivory band.
Ivory case, maroon base, polished chrome escutcheon and maroon band.
According to "20th Century American Clocks: Desk, Shelf and Decorative" by Mark V Stein, the Ivory is the rarest, with the black being second rarest. The Brown is the most common as with the Electro Alarm .
The clock was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. The dials are ivory with black characters. The brown and black models were introduced in 1936, the Ivory (pictured) in 1937. All were discontinued in 1939, however a few were shipped from stock after the war. There were 26,226 sold according to company records.
This clock is not quite and needs a new rotor. The case is in great shape except for one little crack in the lower right hand corner and the plug and repaired cord are original.
