Revisiting Extremely Rare 1938 1st MWF Aircraft clock.




During this time of enforced idleness, though i would revisit some of the Rare and interesting items in my collection, over the coming weeks.

1938 1st MWF Aircraft Clock.This is an extremely rare clock. One of the first versions of the famous Russian "MIG" clock. Taken from Jaeger`s original Chronoflight  version, of the 30`s.

The Russians started manufacture in about 1937.

As you can see from the first picture, the movement is gold plated, [sellers picture]. One anachronism regarding this movement, is the lower minute  dial runs backwards.

Astonishingly the clock still keeps immaculate time and all its functions work perfectly.

Just a word about the seller. I have heard a lot about Ukrainian Franken sellers, and how not to buy of them. Well....this particular seller has always had some really way out frankens, but, occasionally has some gems. If you take the time to do your research, no seller should be out of bounds.
