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!
