LARGE 11 JEWEL SHIP'S
8 DAY CLOCK No. 66 - Ca 1948
Seth Thomas has been
noted for its ship's clocks for well over 100 years, and in its early days, was the sole provider to the U.S. Navy
STAND INCLUDED ~ A $75.00 VALUE
Presented is a very rare, vintage,
eight day, 11 Jewel movement, striking bell clock whose design introduction dates to 1921, and this one with
a movement signed and dated, 1948. It is the first we've had in this larger size, making it very rare and suitable
for presentation as an important gift. The No. 115 movement closely resembles, and is the equal of Chelsea's
similar Ship's Bell design, but with the added feature of the Seth Thomas patented self-correcting rack and snail ship's bell
striking design. It is housed in a very heavy, forged bronze case with screw on bezel. It should not be mistaken for clocks
of lesser quality such as the more ubiquitous Merrimack, Mayflower, Helmsman or Corsair models, or those with a
11 Jewel 8 day bell movement
RECENT SERVICE: The clock has
been just serviced by a master clock smith, and the movement is keeping good time and rings ships' bells in sequence
loudly, with a deep throaty resonance and an authoritative tone that is second to none.
This early version was the top of the Seth Thomas
line, and will make a suitable gift or worthy of inclusion in a collection of fine marine clocks
SPECIFICATIONS: Forged bronze
case with screw on, moisture resistant bezel. The six inch face has a five and one half inch viewable area. The acid etched
silver plated dial has Arabic numerals and Copperplate lettering filled in black enamel. The precision 8 day, No.115
movement with 11 jewels has a compensated balance wheel and Breguet hairspring.

CONDITION: This internal bell clock is in especially
fine condition with a near blemish free face, and overall is in like new condition. It is running strong and keeping
good time compared to an accurate quartz watch, and is striking the bells each half hour in proper sequence. The case is in
great condition with only very minor handling marks on the bezel, and one black spot at the top back flange. The
bezel's threads have a high spot and require careful alignment to seat all the way. We recommend it be wound about every
four days for best timekeeping.
The stand is included. A $75.00 value.
