Servo Promotional Clock
Promotional wall clock made from a 14" disk platter
The company who gave it out - Servo Computer Systems Ltd - existed in Sheffield up until 2006 when they were taken over by Phoenix (an IT services company).
Phoenix is the trading name of Phoenix IT Group plc, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a profitable and financially stable business. In 2012/13 it had revenues of £250m, over 3,600 customers and 2,300 staff.
IIRC, the packs used on the ITL were 80M, comprising 11 platters. I don't believe the top and bottom platter surfaces were used, which would make each platter 4M each side! Obviously we don't know whether the clock platter is a similar type as capacity varied.
This clock was very kindly donated by Ian Midgely
