This is a Phinney-Walker car clock.
It has a bake-a-lite type hour face.
It is wound by pulling the string at the bottom of the clock.
Time is set from the back.
There is a metal ring with a arm attached to mount it on a dash or maybe the frame above the window.
I had a rearview mirror with a clock built into it that also was wound by a pull string. But once again, I took it to a clock shop to be repaired (the string would not retract), and it was somehow lost the shop. it's been about 5 years since I last seen it. Shop has since been closed and the owner will not return or even answer my calls anymore. Enough of my misfortunes.
Thanks for looking at this neat little car clock,

    I think this is really nice! I love the face, the bakelite surround and the now faded numbers. When new it would have looked different, I suppose. But now, the plain black face looks really modern. But it must be from the thirties or is it earlier. But it has the look of a Movado or the Henning Koppel for Georg Jensen! Extraordinary! I love the winder too!
