Steamship Telegraph Watch - Full Speed Ahead
91236 Telegraph Watch, £39.99
Time can fly past or drag painfully slowly. Just an illusion? Not according to this 'watch with a difference'.
The face is a facsimile of a traditional Engine Order Telegraph (EOT) as used by the pilot on the bridge to give orders to the engineers. Numbers are replaced by commands ranging from Stand By to Full Speed Ahead and Full Speed to Finish With Engine Astern.
Now that may sound confusing but actually it's as easy to read as a conventional watch - just a little more unusual.
Powered by a precision quartz movement and fitted with a leather strap, it's the ideal gift for old sea dogs awaiting their next command.
Case diameter is 33mm.
