help me ID this antique Answered

I picked this guy up several years ago at an auction.  He is cast out of some sort of metal, stands 16 inches high and is on a 8x5 base.  No markings on him but has a plastic sign board on his front and someone painted a clock on the metal on his back.  He looks like he is holding clock weights and a long staff.  Any idea what this guy is and/or is from?

The person who wrote that eBay ad was either dyslexic or a bit too honest. Since when is something made in the 1980's considered "vintage"? Excluding a good Bordeaux, of course.

Chuckle...I know someone that (until recently when I corrected her...whoever she may have been ;-) that just because it looks old, doesn't make it vintage LOL
