The Compass Clock

This is a great looking little clock I was commissioned to make for an Aviation Enthusiast. Very Steampunk in styling but features a working Spitfire Directional indicator on the front.The indicator is motorised internally and controlled by the little black knob underneath to vary the speed. The knob is also from the original aircraft instrument so got reused as well.

In keeping with the aviation theme, the top bezel is attached to the casing with some tiny aircraft grade rivets! Also fitted are some nice Mullard ZM1040 Nixie tubes with a pale blue backlight. A lot of the decorative parts on the front are also Ex-Aircraft, taken from old instruments and junked items. If you want something similar, just drop me a line and I can make you one.
