About Clock Analogues
A feature of the dashboard of most modern motor vehicles is its clock. Having a clock on the dashboard is a useful way of keeping track of the time without the driver having to remove a hand from the steering wheel. There are two main types of clock in a car, the digital clock and the Land Roveranalogue clock.
Originally, the Land Roveranalogue clock displayed the time by way of a fixed hand and a rotating dial. This was later superseded by a rotating hand on a fixed dial, which remains the present convention.
An Land Roveranalogue clock in a motor vehicle, therefore, normally displays the time by way of a face and dials. Analogue clocks were first developed many years ago and have taken many forms. Most analogue clocks have a circular scale of twelve hours. The minute hand of the clock displays the number of minutes past the hour and, if the analogue clock has a second hand, this will display the number of seconds past the minute. Although the majority of analogue clocks display twelve hours there are some that show a twenty four hour cycle.
The Land Roveranalogue clock runs on the battery of the car, so if the battery is removed or becomes flat, the clock will cease to operate and the time will need to be re-set.
Land Rover trivia
- Land Rover was the two-decade standout winner of the Camel Trophy, a gruelling off-road challenge that sees vehicles compete in Siberia, the Sahara, Australia, and other hostile terrains.
- Land Rover made the 101 Forward Vehicle for the UK military. It was originally built to haul howitzer cannons! The vehicle is so high, in fact, that a step had to be built into the front wheel so that the driver could get into the cab.
- Although the first Land Rover was designed in 1947 (by Maurice Wilks), the company wasn't actually founded until 1978!
- Land Rover was notorious for trying to find ways to avoid paying taxes and extended that to their customers too. They built the Defender 110 so that it could (just about) fit 12 people! Technically, that meant that they could class it as a bus, and owners didn't have to pay standard road tax.
- In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
