He came to the US after WW2, and eventually to work at FAG Bearing company in Joplin Missouri. He was a Radio Officer in the German Military during the war, and later an avid Ham radio enthusiast! The clock has a label with his call letters! Please check out our other items from the same estate! Unknown if the clock is running, and there is no key present. The case appears to be bakelite, and in good condition! It is also unknown how the previous owner acquired the clock! A super piece of authentic WW2 Naval History! Thanks for looking at our items! I secured a key this afternoon and wound the clock a few turns, It is running strong and has kept the correct time for two hours so far. So I will guarantee it to be running and the key will be included! The item “Vintage WW2 Chelsea US Navy Ships Clock World War Two German Soldiers Estate” is in sale since Thursday, July 18, 2019.
