Ship’s Clock – Vintage Marine Radio Company Polished Steel
£126.00 (inc VAT)
** WINTER 2020 – first vintage restock this year owing to lockdown restrictions, due at Any Old Lights mid-December; pre-order now to secure **
A vintage slave clock reclaimed from a decommissioned cargo ship, dating circa late 1980s. We have stripped the original paint and polished the resulting steel.
The Marine Radio Co Ltd is based in Korea. Marine slave clocks were originally electrically connected to a main mother unit on board ship, to keep accurate time, unaffected by violent movements of the sea.
The on-board electrics are incompatible with domestic systems, so we have removed them and replaced with an accurate electronic movement taking one AA battery (supplied with purchase).
The clock face features classic typography and would fit well amid any vintage interior design.
In keeping with the original usage on board ship, some wear and tear may be visible.
Dimensions: 20 cm diameter, 8 cm deep.
