The date of its movement gives an indication of the date of a Temco synchronous clock. The Mark IV movement was produced from about 1933 to 1938, and the Mark V movement from 1938 to the late 1940s. The notes on the Temco page have been updated.

A Smith synchronous electric granddaughter clock, which I have previous referred to as Model GM 30, is actually a Gibraltar, date range 1935-1939. This date range matches a known date of 1935 for one particular clock. I have updated descriptions on the Smith page to include the correct model name, and apologise for publishing misleading information.
My research into synchronous electric clocks is an ongoing activity, and I always correct errors in clock descriptions as soon as I become aware of them.
I welcome queries on synchronous clocks. If anyone would like a private response, rather than a public reply to a query, please indicate this in the comment. I will then send a response by email and not approve the comment for publication.
I have updated the subpages on various makes of synchronous clocks to included photographs of most of the clocks described. As before, more information can be found by clicking on a link. i have also added descriptions of several more clocks.
Many of the Temco synchronous electric clocks available second hand are fitted with the usually reliable Mark V movement. This appears to have been in production for around 20 years. A clock with a presentation plaque dated 2 June 1928 is fitted with a Mark V movement, and a clock with a Mark V movement was purchased new in 1946 (comment by Ghoutz to Temco page).
The Synchronous Clocks sub pages now include brief descriptions, including photographs, of 28 synchronous electric clocks by 16 different makers. More clocks will be added over the next few months.
