    Good morning:

    I purchased recently for a pittance this interesting little clock. It is a curiosity. I have not found any maker’s marks. It is not working. When plugged into socket, motor gets warm with no action. I would like to find a replacement motor. I will appreciate deeply any insights.

    John

    I could be wrong. But it looks like a Golden hour clock , not with original dial though.

    Looks like a Jefferson Electric "Golden Vision" clock.

    I see no sign that the dial is not original to the clock. The gold used on the "Pacific Time" text is the same as the gold used on the hour markers. It looks like part of a limited run to me.

    I think Steve Berger at Timesavers knows a lot about these and last time I looked he had parts for them. They may not be in the Timesavers on line catalog so a call to Steve may be necessary.

    Hi John, your clock was made by Haddon Products Inc. . It is a VERY rare time zone clock with 4 color codes hour hands (one for each US time zone). I have been collecting Haddon clocks for over 25 years and I have only seen one other one like it and I own it. If the hand nut is too tight it could keep it from running. If that doesn’t fix it the Synchron motor will need to be replaced. These are still made or lots of good NOS and used ones on eBay.
