Details
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 Quartz 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 Quartz clock has the facility to chime the 'Ship's 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. Whilst it looks all-but identical to the Commodore mechanical version, this has a high-precision battery-powered quartz movement, which (romanticism aside) doesn't need winding up. Uses one AA battery. 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.

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.

Very Pleased With This Item. One Small Reservation
By
This small barometer is solid and very well made. I like the simplicity of the face.
One small reservation. The screws provided are very small, this is a heavy item for its size, and want it on my wall not on a wooden surface. I shall need screws suitable for this purpose.
Nauticalia Customer service
Thank you for your comments. As a general rule we try not to include any screws for this reason. It is always worth checking any that are included are suitable for attaching the instrument to the surface where it is to be displayed.
