    Art Deco Mystery Cyclometer with cigarette lighter and penholder.

    I bought this cyclometer off of eBay, there is not a makers logo or mark on it, which led me to believe it was a Smith Metal Arts clock, but I don't believe Smith Metal Arts made any high end clocks like this one. The movement is neither Lawson or Pennwood which also led me to believe it was...
