    Hi paul
    The clocks did carry makers marks but were in Red ink so most would have been rubbed off , the rubber band was put around the original (17) as a means of water proofing them it also probably allthough no proof that it quietened the clocks too.the band was also put around the Emergency pattern fuzes allthough i have several with the band im a little sceptical about it being on there?

    Can these clockwork fuzes still work then ? I mean can you wind them up and hear them ticking away, and how long do they tick for if they still work.

    Good question that Daz,
    I would have thought it depends where the clocks are from?

    Private collection therefore looked after or ground dug and prolly seized?
    As for the time length,im sure they made them to tick up to 72-80 hours?,i really should know this one!
