SUPERB!! 1939 Dated Spitfire MkII Cockpit Clock -
An oustanding example of the iconic Spitfire 'rim-wind' 8 Day Clock by "S SMITH & SONS, LONDON"
Mounted on an old oak stand I don't believe you will find a better looking example of this Clock. The lume to the hands and digits is almost perfect. with only the No. 12 showing loss of lume. However the pieces which have dropped of are still inside of the dial casing so that could be restored, but not really necessary.
The clock itself is a temperamental old 'so and so'. If I give it a really good wind it will run for eight days or more and keeps excellent time. Yet there are times when I've set it running and it runs for just a few minutes. This suggests all it needs is a clean internally.
A wonderful WWII Aircraft Timepiece....you will NOT be disappointed.
