Post WW2 electric clock

I like electric clocks. They're as accurate as the 60 Hz they run on and it's easy to tell the cumulative duration of power outages in a given interval. The ticking of the second hand on quartz clocks is annoying to me; the second hand is supposed to sweep, reflecting the continuous nature of incremental time passage.

IIRC from researching this model, it was made around 1947. Now it lives in the White Audio shop where looking at it makes me happy.
