ABR-310 Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-310
Date: 1930
Case: Horizontal Mahogany with Maple overlay on the base.
Dial: Silvered with raised gold numerals.
Details: This beautiful clock was quite a slimline design as far as Revere and GE were concerned. It still measured 8 inches high like most, but was only 18 inches across and a mere 4 1/4 inches deep - compared to the usual 6 1/4 inches. The ABR designation tells us that it was a Revere clock made for General Electric.
8" H X 18" W X 4 1/4" D

Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-430
Date: 1930
Case: Mahogany with elaborate inlays and carvings.
Dial: Silvered with raised black numerals and intricate designs.
Details: An unmarked version of the famous R-430 carrying the GE nameplate. Since this clock was not marked, we dubbed it the ABR-430. These stunning clocks are sought after by collectors and will usually command higher prices.
15 1/2" H X 11 1/2" W X 7" D

Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-851
Date: 1930
Case: Honduras Mahogany with Burl overlays.
Dial: Silvered with etched black numerals.
Details: This is conclusive evidence the Revere was making clocks for GE as early as 1930. It shared many of the same attributes as the Revere R-901 (check our Revere ID pages). At that time the "AB" designation stood for General Electric and the "R" designation stood for Revere.

Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-853
Date: 1930
Case: Honduras Mahogany, Burl overlays and ornament.
Dial: Silvered with etched black numerals.
Details: We borrowed this photo from an eBay seller in 2010. Another variation of the Cathedral design so often used for this year. However, this is the first example of this particular model that we've seen. It's interesting to note that the seller notes that the 'GE movement has been replaced with a Revere movement', not realizing that GE never made any movements, but that Revere made all the GE clock movements which are actually Telechrons! This is a smaller model than the usualu Gothic style clock and we will have new pictures soon.
11 1/4" H X 7 1/2" W X 5 1/4" D

Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-865
Date: 1932
Case: Vertical grained striped Mahogany.
Dial: Silvered dial with transferred numerals and offset red dot.
Details: This is one of the unusual movements GE (Revere) used for a while. The power interupt feature was offset on the dial and it used coiled chime rods. This is a nice Gothic style case with front applied decoration.This one belongs to Jon in Michigan.
11 1/2" H X 8" W X 6" D

Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-867
Date: 1930
Case: Mahogany.
Dial: Silvered with raised black numerals.
Details: Another picture we borrowed from an eBay listing. A simple tambour design with a raised circular decoration around the dial giving the dial the appearance of being recessed. Notice the power outage indicator opening is offset from 12 O'Clock and the dial only has the GE logo and named on it and not Telechron Motored as was common in early GE dials. The case was stamped with the 867 number and the movement serial number dates it to 1930.

Make: General Electric
Model Number: ABR-869
Date: 1930
Case: Solid Mahogany (no veneers) with reverse painted lower tablet.
Dial: White painted with etched black numerals.
Details: This is the GE version of the Revere R-632 as shown in the Revere catalog and on our Revere ID pages. Both are extremely rare, and this outstanding example is the only one we've seen in either version.
18" H X 9 1/4" X 6 1/2" D
