Property From the Estate of Larry Miles, Bluffton, SC
Description:International Dey Clock, Employee Time Clock , with double window, marked on the face 'International Time Recording, Endicott, NY' and label on the base, the interior of the door with instructions, with pendulum. Based on the 1888 patent by physician Alexander Dey for the dial time recorder. It was a spring-driven clock with a cast-iron wheel perforated with numbered holes. Employees would press a rotating pointer into the hole at their assigned number to record their time on a preprinted sheet. Founded in 1900, the International Time Recording Company supplied a diverse line of timekeeping devices for businesses, and in 1924 it emerged under a new name, the International Business Machine Corporation, known today as IBM.
