Large Antique Seth Thomas US Navy Battleship Pilot House Clock

This Great Old Clock Has Been Sold.
Thank you!

EXTRA LARGE U.S. NAVY 10 INCH
BATTLESHIP CLOCK
WW I & WW II SERVICE

Important Seth Thomas large US Navy Command clock image

EXTREMELY RARE SETH THOMAS PILOT HOUSE
MIL-SPEC MODEL

Presented is a very rare antique, eight day clock with an 8 inch face, and 10 inch forged brass case. It compares closely to a similar clock that was made for the USS Tennessee (BB-43) by Chelsea which we had the honor of selling earlier in 2015. Seth Thomas & Chelsea both followed the Navy's specifications for the Pilot House movement so that they may be considered of equal quality.

PROVENANCE:  Handed down in a Washington State family over the last 60 years from an uncle who served in the Pacific Theater during WW II. 

Ref. In our thirteen years of dealing in high quality military timepieces, this is only the second example that we've had to offer. Because of this, we believe that they were only issued to WW II Battleships in the 1920's Standard and the 1940's Fast categories or 33 ships combined. This may account for this size and type clock not being mentioned in any of the respected reference books such as the Demeters, Tran Du Ly and Marvin Whitney.

DESCRIPTION: The clock is housed in a heavy forged brass case with desirable side opening bezel which measures 10 inches in diameter. It has a large 8 inch brass 12 hour dial that was recently re silvered after being serviced by a master clock smith. The Arabic numerals and inscriptions are screened in black. Above the 12 O'clock position is the winding arbor and below that is U.S. NAVY. Next comes the hands arbor that features a Spade style minute and hour hand. The large seconds hand has it's own dial and the hand has a Spade tail. A Fast/Slow Lever regulator is directly to the top left of the enlarged seconds dial. Both the precision Seth Thomas, 8 Day 11 jewel movement and the similar Chelsea Model E Pilot House movement, and lever escapement with large seconds dial and serial number date this clock's manufacture to 1917. It weighs a heavy twelve pounds. It is keeping excellent time when rated against a quartz comparison watch. A key is included.

CONDITION: This fine clock is in remarkable condition. The Seth Thomas Pilot House movement is bright and clean and was recently serviced by a master clock smith who installed a new main spring. A newly re finished dial was installed and is near blemish free. Since it is approximately 98 years old, we recommend it be wound about every four days for best timekeeping.
