This is a very early and very nice version of these classic factory clocks made in Leipzig, East Germany by ELFEMA (Electro-Mechanics Mittweida). This is the only time I have had one of these earlier than the 1960s, and this piece is dated on the reverse 29 July 1959.
The steel case is in good structural order with no damage, there is remarkably little wear. The dial is in nice condition overall. There are a few areas of very minor wear and it has aged to a mellow pale ivory colour. 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.
