I love it - I think the non-typical clock face (numbers) give it a great look.   Yes, it's a clock, but the face also lends itself to more of a meter function.   Very cool piece.

Ozzie I think you bought that from Joe Morabito/Main Street Toys. He had it there forever ,I think originally $3500. I guess he has a new home !

Yes it's from Main St , the piece is 26 1/2 inches

tons of detailing & a mind numbing amount of rivets 

this seems like it took a long time to create

I have other angles of anyone wants to see just LMK

Oz, is it made of metal or wood? Do the treads actually work?

Hey Robert , it's mainly wood , with metal & some plastic ( clock cover etc ) 

 don't know what those rivets are, treads are glued in place so it doesn't roll  : ( 
 

The teal color is so 50's like it could be in a diner, 

I've always believed Teal should have been used as a color in the 50's

especially a teal gang member to go with the lavender :biggrin:

 

Maybe a few of those green/blue colors like the sonsco spaceman get close
