These clocks are made from the genuine acrylic window panes from former British Airways, Boeing 747-436s. They are the rear section of the outer pane, which is fitted directly to the fuselage, rather than inside the aircraft cabin. They were removed immediately prior to the aircraft’s scrapping.
Cleaned and lightly polished, they are laser-etched with the airframe details and fitted with a single AA battery-powered, silent sweep quartz clock. Left clear with black text, or finished in ‘Landor’ blue with white acrylic applied to the etching, each pane is unique and still bears the hallmarks of its operational life. Expect some scratches, chips and crazing, along with occasional remnants of the Clearvue coating applied to them to extend their life.
Measuring approximately 16 x 11” (400 x 280mm), the windows can be hung from the clock mechanism, or surface mounted on a plate stand.
Clocks are produced in batches from these iconic aeroplanes as they’re scrapped. Sign up for our free newsletters for prior notification of which airframes are coming.
