Description

Made in the USA, the Detex Newman Watchclock was first introduced in 1927. Security Guards used the watchclock at the Otis Mill in Jay. The guards made their rounds every hour and had to turn the key attached to the station so that the hour was recorded on a piece of paper that later could be printed out.
