( 17 cm x 19 cm )                 NITTON CLOCK CO. / Japan  (1975)

The world map is shown in "North Polar Projection". MEZ (= Berlin)
is on top.  This "tic-tac" clock has a "balanced spring" mechanic.
A battery powered motor winds up the main spring  every 8 minutes.

  Detail:  Part of the clockwork is a mechanical timer,  which
  -------  activates the electrical contact to power the motor.
  The contacts are simple and have to be cleaned every quarter.

The CLOCK WORK is the same as in the  QUELLE WORLD CLOCK ...
   ... but the  REPRESENTATION  is different:

  o  The  ACRYLIC DISC  shows  0 ... 24  HOURS ( Berlin on top )
  o  The  SINGLE HAND  shows  0 ... 60  MINUTES
  o  The  RED JET PLANE  is the  SECOND INDICATOR
  o  With COUNTRY PREFIXES of SHORT WAVE AMATEUR RADIO STATIONS,
     eg.:  DJ,DL,DM = Germany;  W = USA;  ZL = NewZeeland ...

Have a clother look to its tasty design ...

               and Short Wave Amateur Radio Equipment.
