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.

Looks nice, but cheaply made
Not bad as a replica instrument clock. Entirely plastic, though it's molded and assembled well. Biggest drawback is the clock mechanism itself-- the movement gears are noisy! In a quiet to low ambient noise room where this clock is, the mechanism winding noise is amplified by the desk. Rather obnoxious Sound like a scratching noise continuously. When you pick it up and hold it vertically (clock face pointed up) the noise goes completely away.

For the $40 price I wish it would have had a better clock mechanism in it.
