We usually source vintage double-sided ships’ clocks (as a sideline from our vintage maritime lighting), which are extremely popular. Now, for the smaller budget, we have tracked down these vintage gems.
These are original steel Seiko ships’ clocks which would have been used on board vessels at sea, with all the heritage and backstory that goes with that. They come in three different original colours:
(To view the stripped and polished version pictured please click here.)
Each of these colours has a very vintage feel and could be worked to fit any colour scheme and design ethic. They would also look great in a rustic or mid century modern bar or restaurant.
Originally run off the ship’s electrical system, which is incompatible with domestic systems, we replaced the defunct mechanism with an extremely reliable battery version.
Clock dimensions: clock face diameter 18cm, back 22cm; depth 7cm. The rear is a thick black rubbery plastic, incorporating a large hole that can be used for hanging purposes.
