A vintage Kappa ship’s clock with rimmed back, bearing its original blue-green paint.
This clock would have been used aboard an ocean-going vessel that has since been decommissioned – I’m afraid it’s impossible to specify which one.
Our vintage ships’ clocks date circa 1988-1998. Labelling inside may indicate the precise year of manufacture.
All clocks used on board ship run off an electrical slave system – so that every clock tells the same time! – that is incompatible with domestic electric systems. So we have removed the redundant electrics and replaced with a highly reliable quartz battery version (taking one AA battery – supplied with purchase).
In keeping with the original usage on board ship, some wear and tear or degradation may be visible. Face colouration depends on its exposure to daylight, so may vary in shade from the example pictured.
The rimmed back features small screw holes which can be used for mounting to a wall.
Clock dimensions: clock face diameter back 21 cm; depth 7.5 cm.
