    This is a Westinghouse Wind-Up Alarm Clock patented April 27, 1920.
    The alarm wind key and arm are quite unusual. In photo #4 the arm is at the off right post position. As you wind the key, the arm moves to the left post and is ready to sound off at the time that is set on the alarm dial (small dial between the 5:00 & 7:00 position.
    The case is made of cast pot metal, and the clock weighs 3-1/3 pounds. Very heavy. Not one you want to throw across the room when it goes off.
    ( I have another, older Westinghouse alarm I will post later).
    Thanks for taking the time to stop by,
    Dave

      Regardless of how tired I was, I never had desire to throw my alarm clock-- neither when I had modern ones, nor with current antique one I use though it ticks louder than I talk and screams sky-high when it goes off.
      I'm surprised that Westinghouse made a wind-up.

      Hint if you go to use an antique alarm clock: Find one with the bell on top. You can wrap the housing in a light jacket to quiet it and leave the bell on top exposed so you hear it ring. It makes a world of difference.

      SpiritBear, I have an internal alarm clock that wakes me up by 4:00 am every morning. I thought that when I retired almost 15 years ago, I would be able to sleep-in until 6:00 or 7:00, but that hasn't happened yet.
      I'll post my other Westinghouse wind-up

      LOL. I typically wake up somewhere in the 3 AM range. It's not a problem, for I have to be up by 4:20 AM anyway. But, it sure would be nice to sleep till my alarm went off.
