    Default Well I got another Military Clock

    Well last weekend I went to a NAWCC mart just to look but then I see a Chelsea US Army Message Center Clock M1 for half the price they normally sell for.I have a M2 version that's larger and has a swing out bezel to change the time and wind.The M1 is rarer and it's smaller has a screw out bezel ring to wind it but has a nob on the side to change the time so you don't have to remove the bezel ring.I have seen these less.It's a early one proberly around 1942 and from the dial had a lot of field use.You will also see it has two time zones so you can put the time zone the message came from and the time received.


    Here is a photo of it next to a normal size Chelsea case.

    Here is my M2 version that I got a few years ago you will see US Army on the dial on my new one some one painted it out.They were all used with wooden carrying boxes wish my new one came with one.
