BRASS MECHANICAL 8 DAY SHIPS BELL CLOCK BY HERMLE
Height: 18.0cmWidth: 18.0cmDepth: 9.5cm
Solid Brass Ships Case with an 8 Day Mechanical Ships Bell Movement by Hermle. This traditional maritime clock features a high quality keywound movement with white dial and roman numerals. The brass case is polished with a bevelled crystal glass mounted in the solid brass hinged door. Also featuring a jewelled escapement, this clock is great example of many high quality clocks made in Germany by Hermle.
The 1/2 hour striking Ships Bell Movement strikes the bell each half-hour with the number of bells increasing each 1/2 hour to 8 bells at the end of each four-hour shift. So for example, 12:30 is one bell, 1:00 is two bells, 1:30 is 3 bells and so on until 4:00 which sounds 8 bells. At 4:30 the count will start again at one bell and end up with 8 bells at 8:00... so there are 3 shifts in a 24 hour period.
Manual night-time shut-off is enabled by sliding the forward facing lever on the dial. The clock is 18cm in diameter with the dial measuring 15cm across. For full specifications please scroll down the page and click to expand.
