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. They can sound out the fascinating "Ship's Bells" watchkeeping system of four hours on four hours off, striking one bell after the first half-hour, two after an hour and so on until the end of watch "eight bells" - time to change crew and start the pattern again. This electronic Royal Ocean Clock is powered by one AA battery which keeps the quartz clock and Ships' Bells striking movements running for a year. The intricate workmanship is protected in stove-lacquered, solid brass cases or with thick glass ports, secured by brass scuttle clamps. They have black hands and numerals on white dial with a red sweeping hand (not illustrated). Measures: 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.

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.
