The original owner of this Gottlieb Teleometer says it is a model L832 but I don't know where he got the model number. If you Google it, it is not shown in the results and it appears nowhere on the clock itself. The case is in rough shape, I'll hit it with some Howard's Restor-A-Finish and leave it (Thanks Chadakoin for the recommendation). The numerals are different than my first one, and is a older model than my first one. The first one is serviced from the bottom, this one is serviced from the back.

This Gottlieb Teleometer is 20" wide, 14.5" tall, and 3.75" in depth. The biggest digital clock in my collection. She does run and has a large Synchron motor pushing the works. To show how large she is I took a picture of her with the other M. M. Gottlieb Teleometer that I own, it is 4 or 5 times it's size easily.

There are three numeral disks, the hour disk is about the size of an LP record album, the tenths disk is about the size of a 78 RPM record and the minute dis is about the size of a 45 RPM record, the disk that is attached to the motor is about 4 inches in diameter with a screw that is used to adjust the minute disk. I replaced the frayed cord, other than that she is original.
