Very cool aircraft clock. Probably from a B-17 or B-29. It probably has been through a war.

NICE!

AF- 42 suggests 1942

Is the manufacturers part #  21A1 or 21A11 ?

That is cool!
Wouldn't it look good on the dash of a custom/vintage car?

Ok so the question is how do we ID this?

Military or 8 days?

I agree with 21A1. So that's a 21AE, now we need to find a 22B.
