I have always wanted a classic RAF Sector Clock on the wall. Buying an authentic clock cost way too much and I don’t want the hazzle of winding it up every day.
There are several replicas out there and I went looking for one on ebay when I found these hand painted clock faces. Being hand painted they are suitably non-perfect. And since it’s just the face, there’s some DIY in it for me…
I received the clock face yesterday and it looks really cool!
However, I think the painter/seller probably used a clear laquer that is incompatible with the underlying paint, as there is some crazing in the laquer layer.
But I have decided to keep it and that it will add to the patina of the clock, when finished.
Going to add a radio controlled quartz clock to it and make a wooden case for it. Thinking about walnut wood…?
