Japanese airplane clock WW2 - $1000 (redding)

12
WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Seikosha Type 100 Aircraft Clock. This was used in various fighters, bombers, and destroyer aircraft

Time played an important role in military life during World War Two. Each country had its own variation of night timepieces, which were all similar in design. The Japanese timepieces primarily bore the manufacturer's name of "SEIKOSHA," (Seiko), and featured the following characteristics:

Primarily manufactured by Seikosha Company Ltd.
Pre-1940 - brass block metal case assembly and exterior components
1941--1945 light aluminum block metal case assembly
Rotating rim with red, blue, and green arrows for marking time
Large Arabic numerals
Four-cornered screw hole emplacements for fastening to the aircraft's instrument panel
Large brass winding button (pre-1940)
Large light aluminum alloy or Bakelite winding button (1941-45)

This clock is the rare brass model (pre 1940) and is complete. It worked when I was a kid. My father brought it back from the Philippine Islands at the end of WW2. An aluminum version with a broken off winder just sold on Ebay for $1200. My price is $1000. Call Tom in Redding at show contact info .
