The Granville Brothers built just 15 of the stout little Gee Bee Model R racing airplanes. Very few survived, in part because they were so dangerous and prone to crashing. These planes from the 1930s were flying 300 mph at a time when military planes were lucky to hit 200.
But, you can still get your hands on a Gee Bee in the form of this Black and White Gee Bee Desk Clock.
Owning this little desk clock is a lot easier and safer than owning an original. Buy one and put it in your home or office, it will look fast, even as its going nowhere.
