    German WWII Warbird clock

    A couple days ago whilst searching the small ads for car parts i noticed a clock laying between old mirrors on a pic. It looked like a German aircraft clock so i asked the seller about a mirror i liked. We negotiated a price and i asked what he wanted complete with the little clock on the pic. He added $12 for it.
    Today the box came in and the clock is really a WWII clock as used in many German Warbirds like the Me 109 and FW190.
    A bit research needed to know that this is the V5.1 of the Bo-Uk-1 made by Junghans. The V5.1 was introduced later in war. My clock needs to be checked by a clockmaker because the wind up mechanism is hard going, otherwise all works.
    I'd say it was a good deal for 12 bucks....









    Some info on the German clocks
    JUNGHANS

    And the V5.1

    that's really cool, probably somewhat rare as well. My Grandmother used to have an instrument panel clock with stopwatch that I believe came from a P-80 Shooting Star. Sadly I don't know what happened to it after she passed away

    That's a really cool find. Good deal!... I say. The paint on the hands might be Radium so be careful there.

    Keep your eyes pealed for WWII aircraft altimeters. They make neat desk barometers. I have one and a lil tap and I can see if the pressure is falling or raising.

    I'm fine if you pay in Denarii or these little old Pennies. I paid 10 Euros so we just have to find the exchange rate.

    Not as rare as you might think, but still worth a couple hundred now.

    Thanks, good idea! My father had a turn and bank indicator on the shelf. He kept it as souvenir from his service. If i find a barometer i can start my own instrument panel...
    Not sure a bout the paint. Pretty sure it is/was the real stuff. I tested and it's not glowing any more.

    In fact, it could be installed in almost every German wartime aircraft. I got in touch with a collector and he confirmed my research being the clock a late war version.
    Doesn't matter if it was installed in a trainer for blind flight training or a TA 152. A piece of history saved.
