FSOT: Patek Philippe 24hr Industrial Clock

Hi all, I hope I'm not out of line in listing this, but I wanted to post it here and see if I get any "feedback."

What I have is an Ultra rare clock from the 1960s or 70s made by the industrial division of Patek Philippe Geneve. I don't know much about it, but did find that it was used for an analog read-out option for an early HP Atomic Clock. In fact it is identical to the clocks used in the "flying clocks" experiment that proved Einsteins Theory of Relativity in 1971 (If I remember the year correctly).

What you see is what you get.
Movement does advance 1 second with 5 volts applied, so it should work with a simple 1 pps circuit. Let me know if you have any questions
Low serial number (2254). There were probably very few of these made.
Please view all pictures. I don't know its intrinsic value, but it definitely is an ultra rare piece (just try to find another exact match online), so I'm looking for best offers of $750+

I accept Paypal and bitcoin. I'm willing to ship worldwide, just contact me for a price quote to your country. I have sold a few items here and I sell many things on eBay as user 'lvlinux'

This would make a great project and an interesting display piece. The case is approximately 3.5 inches square with the face about 2 inches in diameter. Thank you for looking and thanks to Jeff and all CT team!
