If you were a Chicagoan looking for a job in the 1940s, the war provided many, as defense factories popped up all over the city seemingly overnight. While toiling away, you would have looked up at a clock just like this to see when it was time for lunch. This Chicago Factory Wall Clock was built to mimic the large timepieces that adorned the walls of factories in the Windy City in the ’40s. The Chicago Factory Wall Clock features a bi-level dial, visible brass gears, a steel case, solid brass knobs, and a hinged front, which opens outward. It’s a clock with more character than any you’d find at your local big box store.
