The Watch Face Ticka and the monogrammed top was replaced with a pocket watch face with the hands fixed at seven minutes past ten, roughly indicating the angle of the picture. The second model introduced was the focal plane Ticka camera from the patent in 1908. The upgrade included a focusing Cooke f/6.5 lens and an adjustable focal-plane shutter with five speeds of 1/75, 1/100, 1/150, 1/200 and 1/400 and time. The original Ticka sold for 8s 6d (0.375GBP), the watch face Ticka was 10s 6d (0.525GBP) and the focal plane Ticka for 2 10s (2.50GBP). The watch face Ticka was still listed in 1914 but the focal plane Ticka had disappeared before and is hence the rarest of the production models.
