I have always loved the look of that type of timer, that is a nice one, in fact all the timers shown in this thread are nice. These little clockwork bits are just another reminder of how cool some old tech was.
I have looked at several of those types of timers and always go back to my old Kodak timers that only work on Kodak cable releases. My Kodak cable releases work on all my cameras that take cable releases, and the ones that don't take cables have timers or remotes, but I do have a Zeiss folder that has a timer and takes a cable.

The OP reminded me that I might still have one. When I was back in Los Angeles, I found it. Now it will hang out with my Pacemaker Speed Graphic since the smaller format cameras have the self timers built in. Thanks to the OP!
