That was a timer,Now it's a lighting contactor for parking lot lights most likely .

The little transformer is the control circuit,it may be hooked up the a low voltage photo eye,so when the photo eye see that it's dark the contact in the switch closes and controls the transformer and the transformer closes those contacts above so all those lights go on.

It doesn't time anything: Someone butchered an old enclosure into a half-assed contactor.

you should see how they butchered in some contactors at this apt complex I service.

that old timer enclosure would be a vast improvement.
