Perfect Gift for pilots or aviation enthusiast!
40 years ago, Davtron designed and manufactured our 811 series clock for aircraft. This 811 series clock was installed in Air Force One aircraft SAM 26000 and SAM 27000. Davtron clocks have been installed on all Air Force One planes since 1974. With this clock's long esteemed history, it will surely be a topic of conversation for those not necessarily sitting in your cockpit. There are four 811 Series clocks installed on Air Force One aircraft SAM 26000 and SAM 27000. The SAM 27000 entered service in 1972 and for the next 29 years was used as the primary aircraft for seven US Presidents: Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. With each glance at the 811 Series Aviators Desk Clock, you will not only read the most accurate time, but will also be reminded of a significant time in our history.
" I must admit that I almost didn't pull the trigger over the price, but then the box came. I'm thoroughly impressed. It's a serious hunk of metal and built very well. I'm almost surprised it didn't come with a yellow tag (FAA form 8130). ;) I bought it as a present for my father who I'm sure will love it when he gets it. Great product! I'm quite impressed. "
" I highly recommend the Davtron D811C. It is a time MASTERPIECE. The face is easy to read from any angle and the functions are extremely easy to use. I have checked it against WWV several time and it is accurate to the second. It is interesting to use the elapsed time function when doing projects at my desk Best of all it looks like it should be in the cockpit of the newest aircraft of the fleet. A unique feature are the LED lights on the back of the unit. They can serve efficiently as a night light on either HI or LO. I requested the Northwest 747 as my aircraft on the face along with my name and CAPTAIN RETIRED. What an honor to display this unit on my desk in the office. Just looking at it reminds me of 30+ years of flying. The time piece is only part of the great package. The crafted wood box it was delivered in is an example of the craftsmanship also displayed in the clock. It can be used for several things and is able to be displayed, not hidden away. The two pens and microfiber cloth complete the package of excellence. This is truly a package I would recommend to any aviator to purchase. "
" I was very impressed by the wooden box it came in and the build quality of the clock. The machining, engraving, backlight feature all make an impressive clock for my desk! This is above and beyond expectations. "
" The clock is amazing! The presentation is very, very nice. The wooden box is a beautiful piece, the pens, and the towel all together made this a true presentation piece. The fact that it had my name laser engraved was a very nice touch. The clock is on my desk at home and is on all of the time. "
" I am very impressed with the look and construction of the unit. It sits proudly in my office where it has become a conversation piece. "
" The clock was a huge hit! He was actually almost speechless. The whole family was watery-eyed from waves of emotion. Well done. Perfect gift for an aviation, mechanic, pilot, war hero veteran. Couldn't have been better! It was the perfect gift for someone who has pretty much everything. "
" I received my much awaited Davtron Model D811C desk clock today and all I can say is I am completely blown away! When I first found this product I thought it was just something Davtron put together to make something Pilots would like and get rid of a few extra panel clocks. WOW, was I wrong…LOL From the care of my online designer making and designing my cover plate to the packaging and presentation this was a very well executed product. In my opinion, it was worth every cent I paid plus some, I am extremely satisfied and impress with the final product. The walnut box is of amazing quality and a must and the LED backlight/nightlight was an unexpected super cool feature. If you are an aviation enthusiast and pilot this will complete your home or office and make an excellent conversation piece. "
" I could not be happier with my new desk clock. I really appreciated the opportunity to take part in the design process and the final product is exactly what I wanted. The LED lights in the back are an awesome feature both as a night light and to highlight the clock against the wall making it really stand out at night. This would make an ideal gift for any pilot or aircraft owner who likes to think about their plane all day long. "
Power supply plug needed to operate Displays and Backlight; coin-cell battery is used for the unit keeping time when not plugged in.
This D811C is an aviation designed clock that is offered in an Aviator Desk Clock package. Davtron designed the D811C Aviator Desk Clock with the same specs we use for aviation installation. The 9 volt power plug operates the displays and LED backlight. The coin cell memory battery keeps the clock IC running when unit is not plugged in. International customers based on their region will receive a 9 volt power plug with adapters.
