1960's Seth Thomas Auditron VII Alarm Clock Very Rare - Vintage Maple Wood Case with Colonial Eagle - MCM Bedside Clocks Retro Bedroom Decor
In the mid 60's Seth Thomas, known for their high quality clocks, produced a series of "Melosonic" alarm clocks. The idea of the Melosonic alarm was, as a 1967 advertisement boasts, "World's first alarm featuring 2000 sonic- the sound the human ear hears best when asleep". I am not sure how true any of that is, but it was a cool concept for this mid-century bedside alarm clock. The Seth Thomas Auditron VII was the 'Roles Royce' of this line of clocks. Cased in hardwood maple with gold-tone grille and colonial eagle emblem. Runs on one "C" cell battery. With acrylic face plate and stylish hands. Measures 7-1/4" w. x 4-3/4" h. x 2-3/4" d. Being sold as a DISPLAY or REPAIR piece. Please read below for details and see all photos.
Condition Details: Tested/ Does NOT work as intended. Used a new battery to test, and it did tick-tock and I was able to test the alarm which works. However it stops working after a few moments and doesn't always start ticking right away. We do not perform clock restorations, this piece will require repair if intended to use. The maple wood case is lovely, with very little scuffing or wear. The face plate could use a deep cleaning, and has only one two minor surface scratches. The paper face has discoloration damage. Where the hands and numbers are, has brown staining round the outer front of the face. Has brown felt strips over on bottom "feet", one strip is partially lose.
