Seth Thomas U.s. Navy Deck Clock Model 3 In Bakelite Case For Sale

This sale is for an original vintage U.S. Navy boat clock dating from between WWI and WWII. Keeps perfect time. Made by Seth Thomas in the USA. I cannot find a serial number. The exterior condition is excellent. Start/stop feature works. Just a few minor scuffs in the bakelite casing. The dail is a bit dull and the numeral 6 looks a little misshapen. Case front opens and closes as it should. You may have to work with the release button to open. It has to be pushed all the way down. There's two electrical connections coming out of the casing at the 7th hour position. Don't what that's for. The wind stem is at the 4th hour position. Outside diameter is 7" across the face. It's 3.5 inches deep. I'm told most Model 3s were brass cased. The dial cover is not the original. It is a cut piece of Plexiglass.

Question from viewer:
I believe what you have is a zig zag clock. It is more appropriately called a coarse correction clock. I have one very similar. Does your bezel open from the bottom upward? The screws were attached to wiring that ran to the wheel house. The clock could be programed to zig and zag for varies periods of time. A buzzer would sound and the ship would change coarse. There is much to be found on the internet about these clocks.
What is the diameter of the dial?
The outside diameter of the front with the bezel closed is 7 inches. The dial plate is 6-inches. The outside diameter measuring from the minute-marker circle is 5 inches. Yes. The bezel opens from the bottom upward.
