CHELSEA  24  HOUR  WWII  US MILITARY  CLOCKS
( 10_1/4 "  Diameter )




CHELSEA 24 HOUR MILITARY CLOCK  Boston, Massachusetts / USA  (1940)
*******************************************************************
This bakelite clock has a 24 HOUR FACE:  The short HOUR HAND has to
be read first ( 00 .. 23 );  the long MINUTE HAND & the SECOND HAND
read as usual. The clock has no chime.  It was made in WWII for the
US GOVERNMENT. FULL WIND-UP it runs more than 2 WEEKS!  The SPECIAL
WINDER has a stylus on the other end for the  "AdjustmentWheel"  in
the (+/-)Window ...

              

A 2nd MODEL ( SN = 84807E ) was made for the  U.S. NAVY ...

       

Now my friend on the other side of the globe uses the  "US-GOV." as
"BERLIN"-Time - And me, the 2nd "US-NAVY", in Berlin as "SFO"-Time.
Both we prevent so telephone calls in the partner's sleeping time.
