Default Can Anyone ID This Clock?

Said to have come out of a German truck? The three points on the back are spring loaded, so I feel it slid and locked into place. Maybe a piece that could be easily removed. Any help would be greatly Appreciated.

The Fl number holds the key:
23: Navigational device

889: embedable small clock, to be incerted into recce camera e.g. Rb 50/30 for dateing (on the white center field)/ timing a photo. The clock will be mirrored onto the photo thereby registering a photo.

Details:
Einbauuhr Bo U-bi, Alu-Gehäuse 37 mm mit Heizung
Urofa Cal. 584, Hersteller : Wempe, Hamburg

The electrical contacts on the back are for the heating the clock.

The clock caliber could also be fitted ino a wrist watch.
