    What more can you tell me about the item you photographed here:

    It says "New York Standard Watch Co" with quarter marks around the edge of the dial. It appears to be an odometer possibly.

    Thanks...

    Sounds right. Marked "20 yards" at the top, 88 divisions, one full revolution would make one mile. Should be something clamped on a spoke to turn the star wheel.

    I believe odometer is the correct answer. The device was mounted on a turn of the century motorcycle at the Barber Museum. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the other images of the entire machine so that I could identify the maker of the bike.
