Details
Displayed in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, are the remains of a silver-cased pocket watch - a relic of Sir John Franklin’s last expedition (1845-48). It was found in an abandoned boat at Erebus Bay, King William Island, in May 1859, and it is from this that the Franklin desk clock takes its inspiration.
An oversized pocket watch, it has a nickel-plated cast aluminium case and a crisp white face with black numerals. Unlike the original, it has a quartz movement so doesn’t need winding. Takes 1xAA battery. Stands 9.5" tall.

Quartz Movement

Quartz (silicon dioxide) crystals possess the remarkable property of oscillating at a very regular and predictable frequency when subjected to an electrical current. The first commercially available clocks to exploit this appeared in the late 1920s, and went on to supersede mechanical movements thanks to their accuracy and reduced need for maintenance.
