Circa 1930

Benzing Original Breveté, presumably pre-1930s. Particularly beautiful item with winding key. Leather handle.

A pigeon clock is a clock that is used during pigeon racing / pigeon flying. The clock displays the time the pigeons departed and the time they returned. A nice detail: the clock was still used until 1972, as shown on a registration certificate for a pigeon race, included with the clock.

The winding key that can be used on the top of the pigeon clock for clocking race times, can also be used on the front, so that it also functions as a ‘regular’ clock. This highly decorative clock is sure to be a conversation-starter in your home.

The pigeon clock appears to still work, however there are no instructions for use. Therefore, it has not been tested 100%

Dimensions: Size 20 x 18 cm, weighs almost 5 kilos.

In nice, used condition, with minor wear and beautiful patina.
