Presented is a collector
quality Seth Thomas U.S.Coast Guard Mil-Spec clock that was typically mounted on a bulkhead
on a ship’s bridge, quarter deck, or in a wardroom. It has a 6 inch black over brass dial with a 5 1/2” viewing
area, and heavy forged bronze case of pre World War Two vintage which is the standard deck clock case of that
era. The spade hands hands are gun metal black with iridescent green points. The sweep second hand is
the same. A lever type fast/slow regulator is at the 9 O’clock position. All the numerals are marked
for black-out recognition by round irradium dots on the outside. The dots are no longer radium active.
It is fitted with a screw
on bezel and the forged bronze case is hand polished. The movement is a 11-jeweled, 8 day time-only
movement, with a lever type regulator. It is running well. “Made by Seth Thomas in U.S.A.”, is silk screened below
the “6“ o’clock position. “U.S. Coast Guard” is above the center arbor. There are no numbers
or marks on the back of the case. The stand shown is included, a $75.00 value.
Maritime and military
clocks by Seth Thomas were made to the exacting standards of the specifications established jointly by the
military and the U.S. Naval Observatory.

CONDITION: The clock was recently service which included being completely
disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, pivots polished, and lubricated with synthetic lubricant. The clock is
running strong and keeping good time compared to an accurate quartz watch. The case is in good condition with some
rough marks on the flange at the 8 O’clock position, and other normal marks of age and use. The face is near perfect with
the dust ring showing some paint loss. We recommend it be wound about every four days for best timekeeping.
