You are bidding on an EXCELLENT used example of a WW2 US Navy & Marines Aircraft Waltham CDIA Cockpit Clock! This was used in various cockpits such as the F4U Corsair, F4F Wildcat, F6F Hellcat, PBY Catalina, and B-24 Liberator!
During World War II, Waltham, Bulova, and Elgin produced a variety of time pieces to support the war effort. At the beginning, the clock provisions for the United States Army coming from Switzerland couldn´t be guaranteed in the moment when they were mostly needed. As such, comparable clocks were ordered from different factories such as Waltham, Elgin, and Witnauer.
Waltham originally designed this clock in 1910, however the production took place between 1941 and 1944. The movement has 15 jewels, double spring barrel with power for eight days. It was the last 37 caliber clock built buy Walthman.
The winding and setting knob is situated in the fifteenth hour of the dial, and in its normal position it winds up clockwise, it can be winded up in the opposite way without any consequences. Pulling the knob we can adjust the time. The date is to be adjusted by clicking a small button placed beside the knob and it has a small label saying DATE.
Made of brass and steel, this Waltham CDIA (Civil Date Indicator Aeornautical) Cockpit Clock is in GOOD used condition. It does have some marks, scratches, and wear…but nothing that detracts. Sadly, the winding stem/crown is missing, so I have no clue if it is functional. As such, I am selling this for parts or repair. Would make an EXCELLENT addition to any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
