Rare U.s. Navy Ww2 Nautical Submariner 24 Hour Bakelite 8 Day Seth Thomas Clock:
WELCOME! Many thanks for checking out my sale............
Offered here is an original U.S. Navy, 24 hour hour clock. I believe it dates from around the time of World War 2.
The case is made of what I think is Bakelite and the black, painted metal dial is marked 'MADE BY SETH THOMAS IN U.S.A'
The clock is marked verso, as shown, 'EDNO 23'. Scratched into the surface, verso, one can make out 'FD 6645'. I do not know the meaning or significance of these markings.
The overall width measures just over 10 inches. The metal dial itself is 8.5 inches. The height is 2 3/4 inches.
The clock comes with a key, but I do not think this is the original. The clock seems fully wound but it is not running. I have not had the clock out of the case to inspect the movement, but my gut feeling tells me that it should not be too much of an issue to get going, given that the item seems to be in overall good condition. There is one tiny chip/blemish to the painted dial near the number 21 and there is perhaps a tiny area of touched-up paint between 1 and 2. Apart from that, the item seems to be in remarkably good order. The screw that fastens the glass cover to the main body of the case doesn't quite 'bite' which means the door can not be screwed shut, but this is not noticeable when the clock is hanging up, as intended.
I am selling this lovely vintage item for a good friend who does not have access to . Like the other items I currently have listed, this clock is offered with a rock-bottom start price and , giving everyone the chance of offerding.
