Those are the patent dates noted on the front brass panel. All the copper work on the clock is hand made. The design takes a vintage ammeter and repurposes it into a unique item that shows off not only the old but the vintage circuitry of the 1950s. Handmade items are not perfect and this is no exception.There are minor flaws that in my mind gives it character. This meter for as old as it is is in remarkable condition. They built them to last a 115 years ago and it has now found a new life. All the original fittings are still used on this clock. Back to my normal introductionThank you for taking the time to consider my product.
Ive had an interesting life full of hobbies like wood carving, blacksmithing and copper work this experience is reflected in this one of a kind creation. I sell a high quality clock designed in Switzerland and have sourced NOS tubes. With the artistic help of my wife staining and beautifying the enclosures we now have a quality product that I would like to own and that I can sell with confidence. You can have a clock hand built in the USA from parts that are decades old but are new and being utilized for the first time in their lives.
The clock has a battery backup that keeps time to + or - 1 minute a year. However from my observations I would say it is much more accurate than that.
This is coming from a person who is a perfectionist and has CDO (thats OCD but in alphabetical order)That level of obsessive precision goes into the building of your clockThe design is a 6 digit display that every minute if you wish will display the date for 5 seconds and then scroll back to the time. The only word that works for a description is COOLAll the functions are set with one simple button. There are too many variations to describe here but be assured you can have this clock Your Way.Tube life is lengthened by a blanking mode which you set when you are away and also an Anti Cathode Poisoning Feature that keeps the filaments clean and adds to the overall life of the tubes. Inspired by the SteamPunk movement Ive incorporated elements of copper and brass all handmade and unique to each clock.
