Back in Time

Vintage electronics is simply cool. Here is our latest arrival - a mechanical watch timing machine from the 70's made by Elma. My dad had one almost identical in his workshop and this one takes me back to my apprentice days; the good old clinker. But make no mistake, back in the 70’s this was cutting edge technology - a piece of equipment which was designed for timing mechanical watches worth thousands of dollars in today’s money.

This particular Elma Star comes from a watch and clock makers annual auction which was held on Tuesday night. I was the only bidder and got it for $10 - what a bargain!
