Seth Thomas sold several models of alarm clocks with a Westclox Baby Ben alarm clock movement during a period when Seth Thomas and Westclox were both a part of General Time Corporation.   The movement is in a round metal case similar to that of a style 4 Baby Ben without the base. The movement in its metal case is pressed into a wood, leather or Catalin plastic case and secured from the back by a split retaining ring or brackets held by screws. They were made from the 1930's through the early 1950's. The dial's diameter is 2 5/16 inches.
