    Default Tank and vehicle clocks

    I"m putting this thread out in hopes that others will add to it. Here is a picture of 4 soviet tank/vehicle/aircraft clocks which shows 3 basic styles (by no means exhaustive). But I'll start here and hope others join in. As a warning, I believe some of these models are still made to sell to tourists.

    Starting with the one on the right, this one appears to have come ''heated'' and ''unheated'' The difference is a metal plate and connectors in the back for the heating element. This type of clock seems to have been used in a number of vehicles including the ij-6 fighter and the KV-1 Tank. I'll also note that this is the same K-43 movement inside that is used in pocket watches and wrist watches of the time. I have seen on Ebay what appears to be a late plastic case with a older (1938) movement inside it and tarted up to be a ''tank clock''.

    here it is the same light weight clock above inside a KV-1 tank. The ones in the aircraft manual appear to show a bakelite crown, this one and the one in the first picture set seems to have the metal crown.

    Now the one on the left looks like what appears in the Soviet T-55 and T-64 manuals

    The one in the T-72 appears to have the ''winder'' at the bottom......

    The middle versions seem to appear on the SU-122-54 (I need to verify it is the SU-122-54 and not SU-122-44). Which is interesting and may suggest this clock could also appear in the T-54 and T-55 series?

    The tough part of this is when you find the rare inside picture of various soviet tanks, invariably the clock is missing!
