Availability: Out of stock.
SORRY, THIS ONE'S SOLD!!
UPDATE: After a couple years of searching, my Russian friend has finally located another one of these incredible dash clocks, exactly like the one pictured. Of course, I purchased it right away, and it will be in this next week, so there's one more, in outstanding condition, now available! These are rare, so don't wait! ORDER TODAY!
This is a very rare WWII era RUSSIAN Aircraft dash clock. It is mechanical, not electric, is very high quality with a jeweled movement, and runs for 5 days on a wind up. My research tells me it was likely used in smaller fighter aircraft, like the Polikarpov I-16 Ishak (Little Donkey). This was the first monoplane airplane with a fully enclosed cockpit and retractable landing gear and was used early in WWII. These clocks are almost impossible to find these days, and when a Russian friend told me he had located 2 of them, I purchased them both.
These cool clocks have the look of an old European Auto Dash Clock. They would make a great addition to any Hot Rod build! They mount flush with 4 screws, like any old aircraft gauge. They are 2 7/8" on the square, the dial is about 2 1/4" in diameter, and they stand about 3/4" tall. They are identical, except this one is in nearly perfect condition. They do show a little wear here & there, but nothing of signifance. Not very surprising, considering it's about 70 years old! They are in excellent operating condition, and keep perfect time. The small dial with a single hand on the left is a second hand.
I guarantee you will never see these on the car next to yours at your next Hot Rod Show! I had 2 of these that were similar a couple years ago that I got from the same source, and I sold them both before I could even get them listed on the website. They likely won't last long, so don't think about it too long...When these two are gone, that's it, THERE ARE NO MORE!
