SCHATZ  SHIPS  CLOCK
( 7" / 18 cm  Diameter )



Have a Look at ANOTHER VERSION ...

BRASS  SHIPS  CLOCK   » ROYAL MARINER «   SCHATZ / Germany  (1955)
******************************************************************
This "UpScale-Version" of a SCHATZ Ships Clock has ARABIC FIGURES,
another LOCK SYSTEM  and is mounted on a MAHOGANY BOARD  -  It was
a cheap "AS-IS" offer in an Antique Shop in California:  After one
day of cleaning, oiling & tuning it works again ... 

   The chiming pattern reflects the 30 min. sand-clock turns.
   8 "Glasen" equals 4 hours, which is a sailor's work shift.
Example:
   0:30 = ping;  1:00 = ping-ping;  1:30 = ping-ping, ping;
   2:00 = ping-ping, ping-ping; ...
   4:00 = ping-ping, ping-ping, ping-ping, ping-ping;
   4:30 = ping;  5:00 = ping-ping;  ...

                    With full winding the Ships Clock runs 8 days.
