Description



You are bidding on a FANTASTIC example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Seikosha Type 100 Aircraft Clock!  This was used fn various fighters, bombers, and destroyer aircraft! 


 


Time played an important role in military life during World War Two.  Each country had its own variation of night timepieces, which were all similar in design. The Japanese timepieces primarily bore the manufacturer’s name of “SEIKOSHA,” (Seiko), and featured the following characteristics:


 


Primarily manufactured by Seikosha Company Ltd. 


Pre-1940 –  brass block metal case assembly and exterior components 


1941–1945 light aluminum block metal case assembly 


Rotating rim with red, blue, and green arrows for marking time  


Large Arabic numerals 


Four-cornered screw hole emplacements for fastening to the aircraft’s instrument panel 


Large brass winding button (pre-1940) 


Large light aluminum alloy or Bakelite winding button (1941-45) 


 


Made of aluminum, bakelite, and steel, this Seikosha Aircraft clock is in SUPERB used condition!  It retains 95% original paint, and the dial and hands both glow when w when UV light is applied!  Some slight marks due to the age, but overall features minimal wear.  The data plate is still attached, and clearly indicates the manufacture and model.  Sadly, the winding crown and stem are missing.  I have not been able to unscrew the back, so I am not sure if ti si functional.  I do suggest having it professionally cleaned and checked out.  I have indicated it’s location in the las photo.  Like most Japanese instruments, this is a VERY RARE item, and would male a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
