Gino's Beautiful Timepiece

Where can I purchase a Gino Valle Cifra clock?

If anyone has an answer already, skip the rest of this explanation and tell me. ;) Otherwise, read on.

So. After seeing a Gino Valle Cifra Solari on a colleague's desk, I desperately want one for myself. That said, the combination of it being more than 50 years old and a collector's item leads me to believe that I won't be able to acquire one without considerable luck and/or expense. I'm casting my line out to all of you in hopes of grabbing the "luck" portion of that.

Anyone seen one of these in an antique/thrift/whatever store? If you'd snatch it up for me, I'd be more than happy to reimburse you, pay for shipping, and include a small finder's fee (be it cash, goods, or services.)

SUBQUESTION: Assuming I'm never going to actually get one of these, can someone suggest an alternative? For the most part, I'll settle for any clock so long as it is:

1. A flip clock.
2. A 24-Hour Clock
3. Doesn't look like this.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks farishta! Meant to include that in the original post as an example of how much I'm not quite willing to pay, but I appreciate the detective work. :)

I know it kinda looks like the one in your link, but would this one be okay?

Or, more similar to yours: this clock? or this? and this?

A cheap knock-off.
