Houghton Ticka

The Ticka is a camera shaped as a large pocket watch. The lens is concealed by the pseudo winder. It allows 25 views  format 16 x 22 mm on a film loaded in a special cassette. No diaphragm or variable speed, no focus!
A clear removable brilliant viewfinder is available when there is a need for a relatively accurate framing  and preferred to the obligation of discretion.

The guillotine shutter matches the curvature of the box. The shutter cocking is by a small cursor and the release by a small button. Opening is facilitated by an eccentric driven by a large lever.
