NCR made these clocks from 1938 into 1970s, the 1953 seem to be the most prolific, these were given to their top sales people, the CPC stands for Century Points Club. Mine still has the salesman's initials on it. Below is a pic of mine and one from 1938.

The cases for these were handmade, they were not mass-produced and were never sold to the general public.

Re: 1937 Bronze Pennwood Numechron

Here is the chrome one or gunmetal grey one. There were more of the Copper ones made than the gun metal ones made, they rarely come up for sale or at auction.

Re: 1937 Bronze Pennwood Numechron

Teaclocks,
This is one of the first Pennwood's that was manufactured, it is the model 302, if you look at the bottom of the Pennwood tag it says, in small letters, "Pat'd Appl'd for" which dates this 1934 to early 1935. Have you ever re-connected and re-wrapped a coil? I did my first Pennwood coil a few months back, using the instructions for a Hammond clock, it was tedious but not to difficult. I just bought one of the 302s to go with my 303, 304, and 305

Here is a really kool Pennwood clock I acquired a number of years ago. No model number that I can find
That's a NICE one! It was actually made by Mastercrafters using a Pennwood movement instead of their usual Sessions movement. The Mastercrafters clocks with these movements are very rare. Only made for a year or so (about 1940) just before world war 2. I have one also.

This clock belonged to my grandmother . The sticker inside says Tele-Vision Corp of America. Aug 1949. However the motor was made by Pennwood Neumchron of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Would love to find a replacement motor for this. On top of the back cover it's hard to see but it says "35B" 300712.jpg 300713.jpg

Re: 1937 Bronze Pennwood Numechron

attachment.jpg Im working on this clock.
The motor must be burnt out (no ohm)
Is there a place that will repair the windings or replacement motor or used :???::???:?
Thank you
It's been four years, but I hope Tea figured out he can use a Telechron/GE B type coil assy and coil pole, almost a exact fit. Make sure to tighten fasteners very tight or will hum. CW

I just wanted to share a Pennwood clock/trophy that had belonged to my grandfather, Francis "Mac" McElligott. He was a boys' basketball coach at his high school alma mater Loyola Academy in Wilmette, IL (north of Chicago), and it was a gift from his team in 1938, when they went 27-7 for the season.

Here is a Pennwood 190 "Calchron," which looks like a standard Pennwood but is a calendar.
