Hi and welcome to FADU. It would be nice to be able to address you by a name. Are you new to film and darkroom? I ask this as you seem to have come across this equipment( bought?) without knowing anything about it.

It looks to be an early digital timer for print exposures. Have you got the rest of the equipment you need. A timer is important but might not be the first thing I'd get for a darkroom. Film developing might come first

Tell us a bit more about yourself and interest in things analogue. The more we know the better we can help

Mike

Welcome to FADU and analog photography.
I designed a timer like this in 1972, using 7-segment tungsten filament displays because LED displays were very expensive until later in the decade. The front-panel hardware on your timer doesn't look Japanese and I reckon it came from the US. What kind of socket(s) are on the back? Does it still work?
As Mike says, the enlarger is the central device, as are the dishes, safelight and darkness. Enlargers are often offered for free on this forum - no guarantee, of course, and you'll have to collect.

I can now offer a free Meopta Axomat 3 35mm enlarger, a Minolta 50mm El-Rokkor lens, a Meochrom 100watt colour head with transformer, a 10x8 paper safe, some 10x8 dishes, needing only a timer to complete the kit. If you're interested, send a PM.
