RAF / AM MK.IIA Aircraft Cockpit Clock
Stores Ref. 6A/1002. Black painted metal case. Approx. 6cm diameter. Self starting keyless 1-day movement with centre second hand. The clock is wound by rotating the bezel and hands set by pressing a spring loaded lever projecting from the upper left corner whilst rotating the bezel. Black dial with white Arabic numerals. The dial is part luminous and is marked with reference numbers. The case is a little paint chipped but undamaged. Good dial, hands and glass. Lacks 'dummy' hands - hence small hole in the centre of the glass. One dial screw absent. The backplate is A.M. (Air Ministry) marked and 1944 dated. Appears to be in good working order although the mainspring appears to slip after a certain amount of winding. This type of clock was used in some models of Ansons, Battles, Beaufighters, some Spitfires, Beauforts, Sunderlands, Austers, Lancasters and Mosquitos. Stock code C20686.
