Details
The mechanical movement in our Fleet Admiral Clock is made to impeccable standards, and has the facility to chime the 'Ships Bells' watch pattern.

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 new ultimate Fleet Admiral range of ships' bridge clocks and barometers are specially made for us by a world-renowned instrument maker, located in the Black Forest region of Germany.

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

They have lacquered brass cases with robust hinges and screw closures, designed to last a lifetime. Case diameter 7", 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.

Same comments apply. On the plus, the clock has a very pleasing chime and that is a great point of interest. The OK swiss movement is swiss and so hardly an example of vertical integration as you suggest. Once again the product is satisfactory but not excellent. In terms of value for money it's not cheap but then we are not sending it back either. For both products somewhere between poor and good, perhaps you need another category on your feedback form.
