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.
40 years ago, Davtron designed and manufactured our 811 series clock for aircrafts. This 811 series clock was installed in Air Force One aircrafts 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 aircrafts 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 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. "
