Destined to grace the finest locations: from the main bulkhead of a J-Class yacht, to the mahogany-panelled walls of a retired Admiral's study.

Our Commodore mechanical clock is specially made for us by a world-renowned instrument maker, located in the Black Forest region of Germany. We chose it for its high degree of 'vertical integration' (they make the majority of components themselves) and watchmaker-like precision quality control. The care with which the individual stages of work are performed - cutting, drilling, polishing, and assembly - really can be seen and felt in the finished product.

The instrument's clear glass face and white dial with black markings are the opposite of 'fussy', and offer exemplary clarity even in poor light.

It has a lacquered brass case with robust hinges and screw closures, designed to last a lifetime. Our Commodore clock has the facility to chime the 'Ships Bells' watch pattern developed over centuries and favoured to this day by almost all navy and merchant navy officers worldwide. Many captains still prefer their yacht's chronometer to be powered by springs, cogs and gears - they feel it has more presence, a soul even. The mechanical movement in this version is made to impeccable standards.

Dimensions: dial 4", case diameter 5.5", depth 3".

Brass

Brass - an alloy of copper and zinc - is easy to work with, can be polished to a gleaming shine, and it has a high degree of corrosion resistance, making it the traditional choice of metal for use in harsh marine environments.

Chimes Ships' Bells

Before the invention of reliable clocks, time was kept by striking the ship's bell in conjunction with the cycles of a half-hour sand glass. The crew's day was divided into four-hour 'watches', each subdivided into eight half-hour periods.

Mechanical Movement

Even in the digital age, there's something reassuringly dependable about a good quality mechanical clock movement. Those springs and cogs are real - you can see, hear, and feel them every time you turn the winding key.

I found the chimes to be faint at best, although it had been set at the maximum loudness.
