Front view of Seth Thomas WW II Navy MK I Deck Clock image

$75.00 VALUE STAND INCLUDED FREE!

 

A WW II vintage ships clock with a polished bronze case and mounting!
 

Presented is a Seth Thomas WW II ship's bulkhead clock which was manufactured in accordance with military specifications 18C-11 and 18C -13. This formerly waterproof clock was made to be mounted on a bulkhead adjacent to a bridge wing, the quarterdeck, the signalman's or quartermaster's shack, and elsewhere outside and inside. Inside it could be found in the wardroom, bridge or ship's office. It has a 5 1/2 inch dial mounted in a hinged compartment that houses the movement. The left swinging hinged front section's back has the controls for adjusting and winding the clock. 

The 11-jewel 8 day movement is the same quality as would be found in a Chelsea clock made to the same specifications. It is wound, set and adjusted through a slotted cover at its rear. A separate start/stop mechanism at the rear allows it to be synchronized with a master time piece.

The removable circular cast brass vibration dampener is spring loaded and attaches to the bulkhead when the front of the case is removed by pulling its hinge pins. The front of the case also serves as a watertight closure and has a ridge with a groove that formerly held a rubber gasket. These gaskets or seals are no longer present. The bezel is dogged by turning a  nut and all is secure. The shock absorbent rear bracket is frequently missing form these clocks. 

Fitted are white spade hands with colored tips on a black dial and acid etched Arabic numerals in white. The tan dots at the top of the numbers at one time held iridium for night use.  Iridium and radium are radioactive and there use has been suspended so the chemical is no longer present.

CONDITION: This example has seen 72 years of service, mostly at sea, and gives the appearance of ruggedness. The face is in very good condition with little evidence of aging. The hands have been repainted. The lens has some slight crazing which is usually not seen. It was recently serviced by a master clocksmith with 30 years experience who headed Chelsea's repair department and is keeping excellent time. The gaskets between the bulkhead bracket and movement are no longer present. Because of the movement's sandwich construction, there are no visible markings, but the maker's mark and date were observed when it was serviced and the dial removed. A key is included.
