Default Whats this ?

I picked this up a while ago with a job lot of other electronics and bits , but ive no idea what it actually is.

The vendor had no idea either and it was going to be discarded into a skip if no one wanted it , so i bought it for a few pounds just to save it from landfill.

Its actually run by clockwork and there is a throw lever on the back of the unit and when activated it starts to tick.

Also through the front glass you can see a wire or a graph line (im not sure which)

Its made of metal/Glass and its quite heavy too and from the 40s i believe , but thats as much as i know.
