Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.
That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the
mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of
antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as
both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that
don’t break the traditional mould.
This shining clock is an aviator’s delight, with a heartfelt story behind its beautiful, polished exterior… During the Great War, a new type of art came into being, crafted by the talented soldiers who fought in the trenches. This “trench art” was made using whatever the soldiers could find around them – which often turned out to be bullet shells, wood, and fabric.
Inspired by this history, the Propeller Clock is modelled on the fact that only aluminium was used for aeroplane motors during the war – everything else was made of wood and fabric. And so it is that this clock looks to be made of a plane’s spare part, in polished aluminium with a decidedly art deco feel.

- Designed in the USA.
- Made from polished aluminium.
- Unscrew the bezel to access battery and clock parts.
- Batteries included.
