Stanley London Solid Brass Gimbaled
Boxed Clock with Quartz Movement
$189, Now Only $89.50
The Stanley London Solid Brass Boxed Clock with Quartz Movement is a beautiful modern reproduction of an antique
British nautical clock in a handsome brass-inlaid hardwood box.
An accurate timepiece is required for determination of the ship's location at sea using celestial navigation.
Before the development of extremely accurate chronometers, only the latitude could be calculated.
With precise clocks, the ship's longitude could also be determined, however an error of only one second of time is
equal to a 1/4 nautical mile error at the equator.
This accurate quartz clock is powered by a single common AA battery.
The 4 1/4 inch (10.8 cm) diameter solid brass clock is fully gimbaled with a solid brass gimbal set.
The gimbal arrangement allows the clock to remain level even as the ship heels.
The clock's face is 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter, and the hardwood case measures 6 1/4 inches (15.9 cm)
square and 4 3/8 inches (11 cm) tall.
The boxed clock weighs a rather heavy 3.4 pounds (1.6 kg) and is a beautiful addition to a nautical collection or executive's desk.
The front of the hardwood case has a brass slide clasp and the box's corners are strengthened with solid brass inlaid splines.
Custom brass plaques are available for the front or top and/or the inside of the lid.
Note that the inlaid brass diamond cannot be engraved.
We also offer a beautiful matching Gimbaled Boxed Compass.
The Stanley London Gimbaled Boxed Clock normally sells for $189, but is currently on sale for only $89.50.
A fine Weems and Plath Boxed Clock and a very inexpensive Nautical
Compass Rose Clock are also available.
