The Hawkeye timer/clock has a two-hour timer above, set with the large knob at center, and a clock below. While Measured Time, Inc., La Porte, Indiana is inscribed on the dial, the ID tag on the back identifies it as Model L, made by the Stevenson Mfg. Co. of La Porte. It was available in black or white Bakelite, and with either a wind-up or electric movement. Patents for both movements were held by Chester R. Gains and date to 1931 and 1934.

The Hawkeye's curvaceous and very Modern looking case design has only recently been identified as the work of acclaimed artist, landscape architect, and industrial designer, Isamu Noguchi. According to the Noguchi Foundation, this timer was Noguchi's first mass-produced design, completed ca. 1932. It predates his design for the "Radio Nurse" baby monitor by about five years.

    I saw you have the HAWKEYE Measured Time clock. Would you happen to know which was made first; the one with the name Hawkeye or the one without Hawkeye?

    namji: Sorry, I don't know the answer to that one. I've owned models both with and without "Hawkeye" printed on the dial, and as I recall they were identical in all other respects.
