A very nice working example of the First Version of the Junghans Cockpit Clock Fl23885, Bo-UK 1, which is believed to been produced between 1938 and 1940.
These early examples carried no data plate, the serial number impressed into the mounting plate, in this case 26203 As with later versions there is a stop watch function operated by a push button below the winding knob with a subsidiary dial at the bottom of the face showing elapsed time. The winding knob is also used to set the hour and minute hands.
These early versions have a blackened brass rotating bezel with a red pointer and a pressure fit back plate however this example has the bayonet fitting seen on subsequent versions making this a transitional piece. Again with the first version, there is no plate covering the movement which in this case has a number of 25634.There is a good BAL stamp to the rear.
Overall condition is very good. The clock runs well and keeps very good time with all functions operating as they should however, it has not been serviced and is therefore not guaranteed.
A true example of the Junghans Cockpit Clocks in service during the Battle of Britain.
