'[EE] What's the story behind these panel meters?'

I've got three panel meters in a clock I built a while back. They appear
to be off some sort of multimeter, with the ohms and volts scales.
They're pretty big the face is about 4 inches across.

Thing is, someone told me at the surplus place I got them at they heard
there's some big story behind them but they didn't know what; I was
asking the guy if he had any idea how I could get some more. Any of you
guys got an idea? I'd be interested ot hear their tale, especially if
it'll help me locate some more!

Hard to make out any details on the faces, in that picture.

This looks like the meter movement from one of the US military analog
multimeters from the old days - possibly from the TS-352B/U or TS505/U
series of multimeters.

Thanks, I think you're right. Found some info on the web showing them.
