This table/desk clock was designed by Angelo Mangiarotti. It looks sorta 70's, but was actually designed in 1956, for an Italian luxury yacht, and produced in the early 60's under the name Secticon (model name C-1 ). I happen to think it's one of the sexiest designs of the last half of the 20th century. Swiss movement...a constant-force escapement (aka spring remontoire)...highly accurate but tricky and expensive to manufacture.
I snagged this vintage unit at a reputable clock repair chap here in Toronto (who didn't know what it was) for a measly $150.
Finding an original might be difficult, but luckily, it is now being reproduced. The movement is a German made quartz, and the base is white porcelain, but the design is still quite true to the original. Can be had for $250-300.
