Why was the clock for T-55 and T-72 tanks one of the most sought after items in the Warsaw Pact?

The answer is simple – they are light and small enough, that every tank driver could hide one as a souvenir in their own pocket, when leaving his unit after the mandatory two years service. Almost each of these soldiers wanted to take something home with him, but there was only one clock and the tank had a three to four men crew. So sometimes the fight over who gets it was so fierce, that the officers had to intervene. At one point, the scale of thefts of these clocks in the Polish Army was so high, that they were all placed in safes and were issued to the crews only during combat drills and alarms.

Each of these clocks works for full seven days and is quite accurate, it should not be delayed by more, than two minutes in a period of a week. Quite an achievement for something, that was designed in the late 1940s, or early 1950s and was supposed to withstand the constant rattling of a tank engine.
