Details
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.

Our Royal Mariner Clock has two eight-day mechanical movements; one for the clock and one for the chimes to mark the time-honoured "Ship's Bells" naval watch system - four hours on, four hours off (each half hour is marked by an increasing number of strikes until "eight bells" -time to change over).

This is a top-of-the-range instrument, equally at home in the saloons and staterooms of the world's super yachts.

The intricate workmanship is protected in stove-lacquered, solid brass cases or chrome with thick glass ports, secured by brass scuttle clamps. They have black hands and numerals on white dial.


Case diameter 7", clock face diameter 5", depth 4".

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.

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.

What can I say, I just love my ship's bell clock. So far less than 30 sec. slow per week. Every time the bell rings it reminds me of the 25 years spent on ship's bridges. Thank you!
