Stanley London Solid Brass Gimbaled
Boxed Clock with Quartz Movement
$189, Now Only $89.50
We are pleased to offer this beautiful modern reproduction of an antique
British nautical clock in a handsome brass-inlaid hardwood box.
In order to determine the location of a ship out on the high sea using celestial navigation, an accurate
timepiece is mandatory.
Prior to the development of extremely accurate chronometers, only the latitude could be calculated.
Now, with precise clocks, the longitude of the ship can also be found, but an error of just one second of time is
equal to a 1/4 nautical mile error at the equator.
The Stanley London Solid Brass Boxed Clock with Quartz Movement features an accurate quartz clock that runs off a
single common AA battery.
The solid brass clock has a 4 1/4 inch (10.8 cm) diameter and is fully gimbaled with a solid brass gimbal set.
The gimbal arrangement permits the clock to remain level even while the ship heels.
The face of the clock is 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter, and the hardwood case measures 6 1/4 inches (15.9 cm)
square and 4 3/8 inches (11 cm) tall.
The boxed clock weighs a rather heavy 3.4 pounds (1.6 kg) and is a beautiful addition to a nautical collection or executive's desk.
The front of the hardwood case has a brass slide clasp and the solid brass inlaid splines
function to strengthen the box's corners.
We offer custom brass plaques for the front or top and/or the inside of the lid.
Sorry, the inlaid brass diamond cannot be engraved.
The Stanley London Gimbaled Boxed Clock normally sells for $189, but is currently on sale for only $89.50.
We also carry a beautiful matching Gimbaled Boxed Compass.
A finer Weems and Plath Boxed Clock and a very inexpensive Nautical
Compass Rose Clock are also available.
