The dial and construction of this metal Altimeter Wall Clock is so authentic that it replicates the altimeter instrument of a WW II era aircraft. The realistic looking dial shows the remnants of a sub-dial that displays altitude per thousand feet, and the main hands denoted altitude per ten and hundred feet.
The Altimeter Wall Clock is cast, machined aluminum, painted black, just like in the fighter pilot cockpits to reduce glare. The solid brass screws, and knob add to the authentic look of the Altimeter Wall Clock while quartz movement will keep the clock with precise time. A "AA" battery is needed for use. An ideal pilot gift or gift for an airplane enthusiast.
