Brand : Sonora

An American company born in the 1830s, Sonora was initially a chime manufacturer, with the inscription "Seth Sonora chumes clock" in the middle of the dial. It was from this period that the slogan "clear as a bell" was born, which inspired the company's bell-shaped logo. During the Roaring Twenties, the company expanded with its phonograph radios.
