I recently bought two fantastic Bulova Accutron model TE-12 clocks that are definitely date and model appropriate to have been used by NASA (they are even wired.) They have identification numbers as well as serial numbers.

The Bulova factory date code M2 dates them to 1962. On both of them is the number: 496405-100 with one having s/n 2 and the other 4. They came in a box that identified them as flight telemetry timers.

Any info on them or any way to find info would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!

Were you able to ultimately correlate application of the timers to ALSEP?

Interestingly another Bulova Accutron timer with manned spaceflight pedigree was recently offered on eBay (292099195487) from Apollo Skylab.
