Telechron is the name of a US company that manufactured electric clocks between 1912 and 1992. “Telechron” is derived from the Greek words tele, meaning “far off,” and chronos, “time,” thus referring to the transmission of time over long distances. Founded by Henry Ellis Warren, Telechron introduced the synchronous electric clock, which keeps time by the oscillations of the alternating current electricity that powers it from the electric power grid. Telechron had its heyday between 1925 and 1955, when it sold millions of electric clocks to American consumers.
