Hi, i'm new to this site, i posted the following on a Motorbike Forum and was advised to post it here so here goes
This clock was left to me by my Grandad who fought in WW2. The story is, it came out of a German Tank, type unknown, real story unknown as he died in 1983 and I wasn't old enough to appreciate what he actually went through and according to my Mum (his Daughter) he wouldn't talk much about the War. The surround was made by a prisoner of war in exchange for soap or some such item.
The clock has VDO and 8 Tage (8 days) it seems the 8 Tage refers to it lasting 8 days when wound up VDO seems to be a German clock manufacturing company
Has anyone any knowledge about this type of clock? It would be nice to find out some more history of it like what type of tank it came out of (possibly a basic clock that went into all types of vehicle)
