Details:

– Designed, built and finished by Plane Industries, in our workshop in Bath, UK.
– The colour of the face and back can be chosen from any colour in the RAL chart.

Considerations:

– To care for your polished aluminium, we suggest keeping it clean with a dry dust cloth.
– Metals will dull and develop a patina over time, nothing a bit of polish and elbow grease wont fix, for more information, feel free to get in touch.

MADE FROM PLANE

After cutting the fuselage straight form the aircraft we take it to our workshop on a derelict farm in Wiltshire, UK. There we get to work, meticulously cutting, sanding, cleaning and polishing the fuselage section. Over 40 hours of work goes into the making of each fuselage clock.

A SPLASH OF COLOUR

Once the fuselage has been cut and prepped, we start the powder coating process. We love a splash of colour and have used a huge variety of colours over the years, from standard block colours to metallics and our personal favourites, the candy colours.

SAND, POLISH AND SHINE

Once back in the workshop, each clock goes through the rigorous sanding and polishing process. After finishing that we clean it all up, assemble the face and mechanism, package the clock up and send it on its way, to its new home.
