Our
Midi Ocean clock is specifically aimed at smaller vessels, where our other ranges would look oversized in relation to other cabin furnishings, but where top quality is still required.

Cases are a combination of machined solid brass castings, pressings and spinnings, heavily stove-lacquered for a lasting finish. The white faces, with black hands and Roman numerals, are viewed through a substantial glass opening port with a brass cleat fixing. This allows access to the movements for winding, battery changeover or adjustment without removal from the bulkhead. Swiss made.

Measurements are: case diameter 6", clock face diameter 4", depth 3".



Uses one AA battery (option to purchase batteries will appear in your shopping basket).

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.

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.

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.
