The Hammond Clock Company was founded in 1928 in Chicago, Illinois by Laurens Hammond to manufacture synchronous electric clocks using a synchronous motor of his own design. Production continued until 1941. Unusually for American clocks they are not self starting. For more information see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammond_Clock_Company and the following reference.

    I had a Hammond some while back and I think I may have tried to get it working but without success. I like clocks with calendar work and that’s why I bought it at the time.

    I dare say I need to invest in one of those machines which will correct the electricity supply from American to British voltage without harming the clock. I’m sure I read it could be bought from reading an article in CLOCKS magazine recently. Great idea.
