If you’re looking to add a dose of World War II era aviation to your everyday routine (and really, why wouldn’t you?), the Cool Material Shop has an item just for you. It’s the Altimeter Table Clock, but unlike the authentic altimeters they’re crafted from, these pieces tell time, not altitude.
The Altimeter Table Clock comes in standard and aluminum varieties, both of which contain authentic altimeter subdials within the face, which in turn tells time in a conventional way. If there’s a better way to indulge your Captain Midnight fantasies from your kitchen table without hurting yourself, I’m not sure what it would be.
Unfortunately, the Altimeter Table Clock is currently listed as being “out of stock” at the Cool Material Shop here, but you can sign up there to receive an update when they become available, and both varieties are priced at just under $80 – which is a lot cheaper than trying to buy your own plane.
