This is a U.S. Army message center clock made to be carried in the field. The clock, made by Chelsea, is their well known high quality with a jeweled escapement. Since all messages were dated by Greenwich mean time, the white hands were so set. The extra red hour hand was set on local time. The clock is in an attractive and well made oak case with a carrying strap, designed to be opened so as to diplay the clock without removing it from the case. Both case and clock are in excellent condition.
