Telechron was once a highly popular clock manufacturer. This advertisement came during the brand’s long downturn and full absorption into General Electric as battery and quartz technology supplanted the once-groundbreaking electric synchronous motor. Almost every model was a true beauty of then-modern design. They are now highly sought after by collectors.
