Vintage industrial backlit clock

Exceptionally rare 1939 Telechron wall clock with backlit glass face, model No. 1L715. This 1939 Telechron back-lit industrial wall clock is an extremely rare and sought-after piece of American horology history. Unrestored examples of this model bring up to $1,000.00 and usually do not contain original parts and are in poor cosmetic or non-functioning mechanical condition. This clock has been completely restored electrically, mechanically, and cosmetically. All parts, save new wiring and the outer convex glass bezel, are completely original to this very clock. The glass face is original and in immaculate condition. Well-restored examples of this model bring excess of $2,000.00 This is a wonderful piece of American history that is extremely rare to find in good condition with the glass face intact and rarer still to find one completely restored in full working order. All painted portions of the housing interior and exterior were completely stripped and repainted. Any dents were reformed on a mandrel. I had the original motor restored by a specialist in Philadelphia. The original deteriorated wiring has been replaced with new, safe wiring. The pull-chain switch was also replaced. The clock is fully functional and makes a fabulous accent piece as it did in my loft, hanging on the brick wall. The glass face, mechanism, housing, and hands are all original. I've included a picture of it hanging in my former loft. All other pictures were taken last week.
