WW2 US Navy Mark 1 Boat Clock

An original working WW2 US Navy boat clock.

This was made by Seth Thomas for the US Navy and was used on the small boats that were lowered from the larger ships. The backplate and mount were attached to the boat and the clock was issued from stores/bosun to the boat user.

The clock comprises several pieces - which are all present.

1. The swivel/anti vibration backplate.

2. The bakelite backplate with sealing ring.

3. The chromed brass plate with swivel to access wind, adjust ,set. It moves freely.

4. The clock itself in a bakelite and plexiglass mount.

In most of these clocks the backplate and especially the swivel/anti vibration mount are missing. They are all present and original.

In addition the chained retaining rod on the LHS is also correct and original. The tightening screw on the RHS is original.

The clock face is in good original condition.

The hands and dial are also in good condition.

The clock glass is also in good condition. It is a very readable and useable 4 inch dial

The clock is mounted on a solid block of elm hardwood with a key slot to wall mount it.

It comes with a key.

The clock came to us in this condition - we have only oiled it The mechanism it is in full working condition keeps a weeks wind and keeps good time.

The mechanism is dated May 1944.

We have cleaned the bakelite case with a Bakelite polish and treated the wood.

The wooden block is just over 6 inches square.

The clock sits 5 inches out from the wood - so 6 inches out from the wall.

The clock and wood weigh 2.5 kg.
