Patek Philippe’s “Electronic Master Clock System” from 1975 is a real gem. The unit features independent minute and seconds comparators, and displays the time in five different cities, including New York, Tokyo and Buenos Aires.

Interested?

This one went for £4,800 via Bonhams.

    That is quite the dressed-up stack of Eurocard subracks. Wood-grained end panels, indeed! But inside, it’s just a quartz clock synced to an LF radio signal. Nothing atomic or anything.

    Give me an HP 5061B cesium clock any day. It’s way more accurate, and sells for less. They also could be had with a Patek Philippe clock dial.

    Look like a rack of ‘vintage’ audio equipment.
