The clocks were used by the RAF to help track movements of enemy aircraft and control friendly aircraft.
When an aircraft was spotted, the position of the aircraft and the color of the triangle beneath the minute hand was recorded. At sector headquarters, counters with the triangle color were placed on the map. The colour of the allowed fighter controllers to instantly know when an aircraft on the board was spotted and how old the information was.
Measuring an impressive 17" in diameter, this Large Wall Clock is easy to read from across the room. Ideal for the game room, garage, or wherever people gather, it features a rugged plastic body and face.
