Quick Overview

 

UPDATE:  After a couple years of searching, my Ukrainian friend has finally located TWO of these incredible EARLY WWll dash clocks, as well as TWO of the slightly newer WWll Style, along with an incredible TANK DASH CLOCK! The one pictured is in outstanding condition! It's been cleaned and serviced, ready to ship!  These are rare, so don't wait!  ORDER TODAY!

 

This is a very rare EARLY 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 during WWII.  Don't forget the Russians were our staunch ALLIES during WWll, and were instrumental in ending the war with Nazi Germany!

 

These clocks are almost impossible to find these days, and when a Ukrainian friend told me he had located 2 of them, I purchased them both.  (Boxtop picture just shows Crylic writing - Proof these WERE sent from the former USSR!)  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 feature a black  out face, with "glow in the dark", (probably Radium?), numerals, hands and markings.   The two clocks I have listed here are the only ones of this type I have found in many years!  And believe me, I have looked!

 

They show a little wear here & there, but nothing of signifance.  Not surprising considering it's about 70 years old!  This clock is in excellent operating condition, and keeps 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 1 of these that was similar a couple years ago that I got from the same source, and I sold it before I could even get it listed on the website.  These 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!  ORDER TODAY!
