Look, no hands ma! It turns horizontally and a pointer arm on the side indicates the hour. It's 5 inches in diameter, enamel painted, and on the bottom it reads "Made in U.S.A. Pat. No. D-95,184". I wanted to know what is the proper term to use for this timepiece and maybe how old it is or any other relevant info. Thanks.
I just found this:
Your clock is commonly called a "tape measure" clock, but it was sold by the Lux Clock Co. (Waterbury, CT) as "the Mystery Rotary Clock." It was patented in 1935. I'm not sure when they stopped being produced, but there are a lot around, so I assume they were sold for a number of years. The cases came in various colors.
