Telechron ‘Selector’ (Missing Case)

Title

Telechron ‘Selector’ (Missing Case)

Description

A useful clock, this Model 8H55 features an outlet on the rear that allowed the user to plug in a light or radio to automatically switch them on or off. The Selector was manufactured from 1943-1953 and approximately 123,309 were sold. Its details include a brown plastic case 5-1/4"w x 5-1/8" h with ribbed detail on the curved sides.

This ‘Selector’ clock may be missing its plastic case, but still attached to the back is the movement. This clock uses a standard Telechron type H rotor whose output shaft runs at 3.6 revolutions per minute. The rotor is housed in copper. The label on the copper reads:

H3 T TOP M2309
3.6 RPM 60CYC 145

Above the movement is a brass bracket featuring the old logo of the Electric Time Company.
