    No idea !

    Was it entirely UK built, or did the chip, LED module, or other bits come from abroad. Didnít they blow up or stop working after a week ? If so thatís better than Smiths managed ;-)

    You mean from the original Cotswold auction ? These Quasars came later from an auction in the SW. I had high hopes for the original auction too but every man and his dog turned up !

    Can you confirm with it running that it’s really 300 seconds for the sub-dial hand to do a complete revolution. It might be for industrial time studies and the units of the subdial might not be...
