HAMILTON ELGIN 37500

After the disaster suffered at Pearl Harbor, on the seventh of December of 1942, Hamilton, like many other companies, changed their whole production to follow the requirements of the US Army.

The “Bureau of Aeronautics” wanted two sources supplying a clock with elapsed time. The result made Elgin and Hamilton cooperate in the process of designing and building this elapsed time clock.

It is the most complicated clock ever built for an airplane. It contains 417 pieces, 248 different, double barrel with power for eight days, 16 jewels. it indicates time, elapsed time, chronometer with 60 minutes counter and date.

In this clock improvement was added for the very first time as a new system that allows it to set the time backwards through midnight without affecting the date system, and some improvement in elapsed time clocks to wind the clock clockwise.

This complicated clock was fitted in the no easy to fly F 4U CORSAIR
