A long time in the gestation – but well worth the wait – we can at last launch our exclusive Revivals version of the ultra-popular triangular double-sided ship’s clock.
We sold many dozens of the originals – and then they disappeared from circulation. All gone.
Our Revivals version is so close to the original, it would be hard to tell them apart. We’ve just added new colour schemes (and made installing the faces and glasses far easier – boy, those tiny screws were a nightmare!).
Each triangular clock is hand-made in sheet steel. The sides are hinged and open by unscrewing the two screws on the side, to reveal the clock mechanisms. These are standard AA-battery quartz mechanisms; the time can be altered by rotating the little ribbed dial. And each face is covered in a sheet of shaped glass.
The primary appeal of this design is not only its unusual triangular shape, but its size. For a clock, it is big – and each one weighs nearly 5 Kg. Four holes in the base are used to affix it to a wall.
We have just a small number of samples, which were held in damp storage conditions for months, awaiting recalibrated faces. As such this batch has rusted as can be seen in the photographs (the silver, oddly, worse than the turquoise and white). We are therefore discounting this batch – although the originals were often far more degraded. If you like the weathered look, save yourself some cash.
(Please note the small Seiko branding on the faces is an error, copied over too literally from the original. These are not Seiko clocks – future batches will be branded Any Old Lights Revivals, Cornwall.)
Available in Metallic Finish, Turquoise and White.
