Extremely rare vintage Mystery Rotary Clock from Lux manufacturer. This wind up clock was also known as a tape measure clock, due to its resemblance to a tape measure. This round clock is a gray green color with some rust spots.

Herman F. Lux of Lux Clock Manufacturing Company, based in Waterbury, Connecticut, invented this clock. The patent was established on April 16, 1935. The bottom is inscribed "MADE IN U.S.A. - PAT. NO. D-95,184." The winder and the slow/fast adjustment are on the bottom as well. When wound, the clock ticks audibly and winds smoothly for a full wind - 30 hours - while keeping time as accurate as could be read from the linear "tape measure" time scale. There is a pointer that tells the time.

This is the larger version of two different sizes that were available. It measures 5 inches wide by 3 inches tall. I believe this clock is operational, as I was able to wind it and it ticked and kept time as intended. However, I would recommend taking it to a clock repair person for full servicing. It is in very good vintage condition.

Shipping within the United States is $9 via USPS with delivery confirmation and insurance.

Please convo me with any questions, to combine shipping, or for international orders.
