A hard to find aircraft clock of The Great War. It was made with an 8 day center sweep second Swiss made movement marked Octidi. There is an Italian inspection mark on the movement consisting of a propeller a crown and the monogram D.T.A.M. for the DIREZIONE TECNICA AERONAUTICA MILITARE.

Really nice, Greg! I have not seen one of these before. On my monitor it is hard to read the wording on the dial and the movement. Would it be possible to add a couple more photos of close-ups of the markings?

Dial (not my clock or image). I have noticed that some of these clocks are marked "8 GIORNI" (8 DAYS) and some are not.

Thanks, Greg. It appears to be very finely made.
