This is a very early and very nice version of these classic factory clocks made in Leipzig, East Germany by RFT (Rundfunk- und Fernmelde-Technik). The red RFT logo was used only in the earlier 50s, and this piece is dated on the reverse 24 June 1951.
The steel case is in good structural order with no damage, there is remarkably little wear for a 67 year-old. The dial is in nice condition overall. There are a few areas of very minor pitting and it has aged to a mellow pale ivory colour. The logo, which often fades on these earlier models is also vibrant. The early version, curved profile hands show a bit of wear but no damage. The original glass shows very minor wear commensurate with its age.
Overall dia 37cm, depth 7.5cm.
Fitted with a high quality battery quartz mechanism that is fully guaranteed for twelve months. Requires one AA battery which is supplied with the clock.
