Hi, I would love to know more about this item that I purchased from a friend about ten years ago:
* Phinney Walker keyless clock - Rim Wind.
* Brass and quite heavy for its small size (7cm diameter / 5cm deep.)
*On rear is stamped;
Patented Feb.5 1907 / Nov 24 1908 / Aug 16 1910 / Nov 28 1911 / Jul 9 1912 / others pending / Made in USA
* This number also stamped on rear: 116265
Clock winds by turning knurled rim and is working although running a bit slow; losing about eight minutes a day.
Am wondering if this was perhaps designed for a boat or even car dash-board? Please let me know if you can shed any light on the history of this lovely little piece.
