Although it’s actually a functioning quartz clock, it resembles an altimeter used in aircraft. So authentic, this desk clock even fooled a repairman at a leading manufacturer of aircraft altimeters. Features a replica (non-functioning) adjustment knob, glass face and twin pointers. Operates on one AA battery (not included). Measures 3.25"dia. x 3.5"l.

Pros: Really authentic. Clock is is very quiet. Great gift for your aviator or aviatrix. Cons: Quite expensive for what you get. The battery contacts are very fragile and inserting the battery requires great care. Bought this as a gift for my daughter who is taking flight lessons.

Pros: It looks great. Most people think it is actually an altimeter when they see it. Cons: The hands don't line up properly. For example, at 3 PM the minute hand is on the hour, but he hour hand is quarter past the hour on the markings between the 3 and 4. Over all a fine buy. Just wish I didn't have that hand problem.
