Mike, when I retired in 2000, I went around the $2.00 shops and bought quite a collection of clocks for between $2.00 and $8.00, including about ten of these shown below for $5.00 each, all of which kept perfect time. I removed the glass, card dial, hands and movements and made new cases, all different and they were well received as presents. I still have a couple of these left and one day will get around to making cases.
You're fine specimen reminded me of the above.
