Hi Tubut and divotandtralee ,
The black clocks you mentioned, are they also marked Alfa Romeo? I have seen some black Jaeger clocks on the 6C 1750 cars on the Net.
The back plate of the oil pressure gauge you’re showing has resemblance with the clock indeed. Was it of the fifties?
There is no electric involved here like you suggested and the cabel has 2 tasks: winding up and time setting.
I remember that the Mercedes clocks also were 8 days clocks, that was probably often used at that time. ( …maybe that’s why the Beatles made their ‘eight days a week’ song ??)
The clock will definitely need a clocksmith as it doesn’t work at all.
Thanks for your replies, the question of the correct car remains like Tubut says.
Any other suggestions?
