A rare opportunity to buy a premium quality instrument at a much-reduced price. This Royal Ocean Tide Clock has previously been on display during one of our exhibitions and has small marks on the case (as shown in the image). However, it is in perfect working order and is offered with a one year guarantee on the movement. Schatz is the leading manufacturer of classic ships' instruments, and one of very few that still make the mechanical chiming movements that were so familiar to the naval and merchant seaman of 100 years ago. Provides an "at-a-glance" indication of tidal state by means of the blue hand, showing high, low and half-tide. Works by following the lunar cycle - approx. 12.5hrs - thus reflecting the main influence on the tides. Quartz movements uses one AA battery. Diameter 7".

Schatz

Schatz, founded in 1881, are the world's leading manufacturer of classic ship's clocks, barometers and associated instruments. They are particularly renowned for their eight-day mechanical chiming movements, and have supplied both commercial and naval fleets for many years.

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.

Tide Clock

Tide clocks provide an at-a-glance indication by means of an additional hand that takes approximately 12 hours and 25 minutes to go 'round the clock'. Because the lunar cycle varies in length day by day, but is constant over a cycle of 28 days, there will be times when the tide indicator varies by a few minutes ahead of or behind the actual tides.

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.
