Cockpit clocks - a little help please

Post by poppydog » Sun Sep 13, 2020 5:49 am

Does anyone have any experience of this kind of thing? It's a Smiths and has Air Ministry markings, and appears to be 1938 issue, but I can't find anything that looks the same. I've seen others with the same markings / codes, but nothing exactly like it. The bezel winds the movement, and there's a lever at 4-5 o' clock that allows the bezel to change the time.

Thanks Mike, appreciate your help. I'm wondering whether it's had a replacement glass and originally had the movable extra hands for timing. Seems odd I can't find anything exactly the same.
