A very fine and original Smiths Royal Air Force Sector Clock from WW2 and dated 1942. Full RAF issue marks to the 14inch dial, movement and case. This is an extremely rare Sector Clock in original and unrestored condition. The Smiths version was considered by the RAF much better than the Elliott version that it replaced. The Elliott Fusse movement although very fine and robust, could be stopped under certain conditions and could only be mounted on a flat wall in a horizontal plain, however the Smiths version would continue to work even if upside down or laid flat because of the platform escapement Astral movement.
