Argo Clock Mark IV
Model by Rob Brassington.

The Argo Clock was a mechanical calculator designed by the British businessman and inventor Arthur Hungerford Pollen. It developed through several Marks and saw limited adoption in the Royal Navy as a component within the Mark II Dreyer Table, but large orders within a uniform system of Fire Control as its inventor envisioned never came to pass.
